Description:
The Royal Victoria Hospital, or as it is popularly known, the "Royal Vic", is located at 687 Pine Avenue, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The Royal Vic is located in downtown Montreal, on the slopes of Mount Royal. There are a number of buildings, including the Surgical, Medical, Ross and Women's Pavilions and the Hershey wing housing many of the research labs. The original pavilion was designed by Henry Saxon Snell in the Scottish baronial style and was completed in 1893. The newest building, the Centennial Pavilion, houses the emergency room, the birthing centre and a large modern ICU.

History

The hospital was established in 1893, through the financial contributions of two Scottish immigrants, Donald Smith and George Stephen. Over the years, the philanthropy of many prominent members of Montreal's English speaking community helped make the hospital a major centre of healthcare and learning.

In 1920, the hospital became a medical research institute through the Faculty of Medicine of McGill University. In 1929, Dr. Wilder Penfield established the Montreal Neurological Institute adjacent to the hospital. Among the list of medical achievements at the Royal Victoria, the first successful organ transplant in the Commonwealth was performed there in 1958, by a team led by nephrologist John Dossetor and surgeons Joe Luke and Ken MacKinnon. Today, the Royal Victoria Hospital is part of the McGill University Health Centre.
