Pierre Boucher Hospital (French: Hôpital Pierre-Boucher) is a Canadian hospital located on Jacques Cartier Boulevard in Longueuil, Quebec. Inaugurated in 1982, the hospital is the regional health centre for 245,000 people located in the borough of Le Vieux-Longueuil, as well as the cities and towns of Boucherville, Varennes, Verchères, Sainte-Julie, Saint-Amable, Calixa-Lavallée and Contrecœur.[1]

The hospital provides general, specialized and ultraspecialized health care, and is also the location of 3,400 births per year.[2] The hospital is home to 329 beds, and its emergency room is overcrowded at 55,000 visits per year.[2] In 2003, the Government of Quebec invested $60 million into the hospital, which was expanded and renovated. The hospital also transfers patients to the nearby, larger, Hôpital Charles-LeMoyne.
