That’s it! The new site at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences of Université de Sherbrooke was inaugurated by representatives of the Ministère de la Santé, right across from Hôpital Charles-Le Moyne!
And the high-fidelity simulation room so generously funded by Louise and Denis S. Arcand—and boasting some of the most modern high-tech equipment in Québec—is now up and running! It already received its first 24 students on March 6.
We will never be able to express just how grateful we are to our generous donors. Louise and Denis S. Arcand made a $2 million donation, the largest private donation ever received by the Foundation, through a gift of their RIFF. An extraordinary legacy for generations of future physicians!
It’s your donations that power the development of Hôpital Charles-Le Moyne, which now ranks among the major teaching hospitals!

The generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Arcand in supporting the training of future doctors will forever mark the history of Hôpital Charles-Le Moyne.
This donation has funded the construction of a high-fidelity simulation room at the new Jean-Marc Lepage pavilion on Université de Sherbrooke’s medical campus, right across from Hôpital Charles-Le Moyne. The new pavilion welcomed its first 24 students in March 2023. It will accommodate a hundred students each year.
The generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Arcand in supporting the training of future doctors will forever mark the history of Hôpital Charles-Le Moyne. This is the largest private donation the Hospital has ever received. As a tribute to our generous philanthropists, the simulation room has been named “Salle Denis S. et Louise Arcand.
What is a simulation room?
It’s an innovative and revolutionary tool for diagnostics but also for doctor training! It’s a room that reproduces all kinds of clinical situations requiring treatment by a care team.
This risk-free environment allows students to be evaluated as they handle situations that require composure and the ability to make the right decisions.
