The hospital employs 1,200 employees and contains 257 beds, and serves an estimated population of 377,000 in the West Island region of Montreal.[1][2]

The LGH is situated close to major highway arteries such as Highways 13, 20, 40, and 520 and is often called upon to treat and stabilize accident victims. Its emergency department is one of the busiest for distress cases in Montreal with over 72,000 visits annually.[1]
