The MCI is the site of several key programs within the Division. In addition to standard outpatient consultation services, the MCI hosts specialized ambulatory programs in Asthma, Tuberculosis, Cystic Fibrosis and COPD. There is also an active pulmonary rehabilitation program. The MCI is also the site of the inter-university Occupational Medicine clinic, which is run by the Départment de santé communautaire. Another ambulatory service is the Home Ventilation Program, which is responsible for the care of chronic ventilator patients for the western half of Quebec.
The MCI is also the home for several specialized pulmonary in-patient programs. The Day Hospital program aims to care for patients requiring more than routine outpatient care but not sufficiently ill to require admission. The Day Hospital is also used as a one-stop location for patients requiring outpatient investigation. The MCI also hosts the specialized Respiratory ICU, which specializes in handling patients with problems weaning from mechanical ventilation. There is also an active in-patient service that specializes in acute care for patients with chronic respiratory disease.
Long term care services at the MCI are provided to patients with chronic respiratory disease including long-term ventilation for patients who cannot be cared for at home. The MCI also provides specialized palliative care support for patients with end-stage pulmonary disease or lung cancer.
