Founded in 1907 by Justine Lacoste-Beaubien, the CHU Sainte-Justine is one of the largest pediatric health centres in Canada. With its 450 beds, among which 30 are from the intensive care unit, it receives 19,000 inpatients yearly.

Sainte-Justine officially became a university health centre in 1995 and it has, since then, welcomed around 2500 medical students each year.

Since 2000, the Centre de réadaptation Marie-Enfant, the only pediatric rehabilitation centre in Quebec, which counts 95 beds, is affiliated with the CHU Sainte-Justine.

The CHU Sainte-Justine is a health centre in itself. The CHU Sainte-Justine also includes an internationally renowned research centre. It celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2007.

Currently, CHU Sainte-Justine is undergoing major construction. A new building is being built under the project of "Grandir en Santé". This extension will increase by 60% the hospital centre.
