The integrated university health and social services center of the Estrie-University Hospital Center of Sherbrooke has put up for sale one of its buildings on Jacques-Cartier North Boulevard.
I t is a “surplus” property, announces the CIUSSS Estrie-CHUS.
The land at 68 Jacques-Cartier Boulevard is 2728 square meters, on which is built a main one-storey building with a total gross area of ??approximately 1272 square meters.
The premises are currently occupied by the Association of Traumatic Stroke and Traumatic Cranial Estrie (ACTE). The community organization is dedicated, among other things, to defending the rights of injured and traumatized people, in addition to offering various services and supports.
There is also a workshop for making newborn kits for urine screening. About forty people work there.
The building is adjacent to the shopping center located at the corner Jacques-Cartier and King West.
According to Christian Gauthier, Director of Programs for Intellectual Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorders and Physical Impairment at CIUSSS, we found space to accommodate all of ACT’s activities once the building was sold.
