Changes to the phone systems in several CIUSSS facilities

From February 1 to April 12, changes will be made to the telephone systems of the Saint Andrew, Father Dowd, Saint Margaret and Henri-Bradet Residential Centres, Richardson Hospital and CLSC René Cassin.

Saint Andrew Residential Centre: Starting February 1

All phone extensions beginning with the digit "1" will be replaced by "65".

For example, if you usually dial 514-932-3630, ext. 1234, you will soon need to dial 514-484-7878, ext. 65234. Only the 5555 number, to be used in an emergency, will remain unchanged.

Father Dowd Residential Centre: Starting February 15

All phone extensions beginning with the digit "2" will be replaced by "66".

For example, if you usually dial 514-932-3630, ext. 2234, you will soon need to dial 514-484-7878, ext. 66234. Only the 5555 number, to be used in an emergency, will remain unchanged.

Saint Margaret Residential Centre: Starting March 1

All phone extensions beginning with the digit "3" will be replaced by "67".

For example, if you usually dial 514-932-3630, ext. 3234, you will soon need to dial 514-484-7878, ext. 67234. Only the 5555 number, to be used in an emergency, will remain unchanged.

CLSC René Cassin: Starting March 22

All phone extensions beginning with the digit "1" will be replaced by "61".

For example, if you usually dial 514-484-7878, ext. 1234, you will soon need to dial 514-484-7878, ext. 61234. Only the 5555 number, to be used in an emergency, will remain unchanged.

Henri Bradet Residential Centre and Richardson Hospital: Starting April 12

All phone extensions beginning with the digit "2" will be replaced by "62".

For example, if you usually dial 514-484-7878, ext. 2234, you will soon need to dial 514-484-7878, ext. 62234. Only the 5555 number, to be used in an emergency, will remain unchanged.

Once these changes have been completed, these six facilities will become part of the same phone system as all of the former CSSS Cavendish facilities, and they will all have the same main number, 514-484-7878. Employees of the former CSSS Cavendish facilities will be able to make internal calls to the Saint Andrew, Father Dowd and Saint Margaret Residential Centres by using the new introductory numbers ("65", "66" or "67") for the phone extensions, as indicated above.

Although usable for a while longer, the 514-932-3630 number to reach the Saint Andrew, Father Dowd and Saint Margaret Residential Centres will eventually be replaced by the 514-484-7878 number.
