Visiting Hours

Bruyère Continuing Care recognizes the benefits of visits from family members and friends for a patient’s well-being. For that reason, families and visitors are welcome to visit patients 24 hours a day, according to preferences of the patient or substitute decision maker.


At Élisabeth Bruyère Hospital, please use the main entrance (43 Bruyère Street) between 6:30 p.m. and 6:50 a.m. as the doors from the parking lot  entrance at 75 Bruyère Street are locked.

At Saint-Vincent Hospital, please use the main entrance between 8 p.m. and 6:50 a.m. as the doors from the parking lot on Primrose Street are locked.

The main entrances to both hospitals are locked for security reasons between 9 p.m. and 6:50 a.m. To enter during these hours:

  • Use the intercom system located at the doorway to the main entrance to announce your arrival.
  • Enter the hospital and sign in at the Telecommunications desk to receive a temporary visitor card.
  • Return the visitor card to the Telecommunications desk upon leaving the hospital.
  • Call the Telecommunications desk at 613-562-6262 if you experience difficulties with entry to the hospital.

In order to provide a quiet and restful environment for all our patients, everyone on Bruyère premises is asked to respect quiet hours, between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. Please inform the clinical manager or clinical nursing supervisor should you wish to stay overnight.

Visits may be interrupted to protect the privacy of other patients, maintain safety/security or for infection control purposes. Children under 14 must be supervised by an adult other than the patient.
