REPEAT/Patients at Sainte-Justine's Can Now Take a Virtual Tour of the Hospital Before Being Admitted

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - May 25, 2006) -

Thanks to a gift of $ 95,000 from ORT Montreal

The hospitalization of a child is a traumatic event for the whole family. Having the possibility of preparing themselves first, in the comfort of their own homes, can significantly reduce the fear and anxiety young patients and their families may undergo regarding hospitalization.

The Sainte-Justine University Hospital Centre has created a Virtual Tour to meet this need. The hospital invites media representatives to come experience this new service, along with families and representatives of Sainte-Justine's and ORT Montreal.

Date: May 25, 2006 at 10 A.M.

Place: In the main lobby at Sainte-Justine's.

Who: Representatives of ORT Montreal
Representatives of Sainte-Justine UHC
A family who has used the Virtual Tour service.

B-roll available upon request.
