A technological tool for biomonitoring
The Biron health centre at YUL features a laboratory equipped with state-of-the-art instruments that can contribute to biomonitoring efforts should a situation similar to the Covid-19 pandemic occur again.
A clinic in tune with the times
The Biron Health centre at YUL is Canada’s second permanent clinic located in an airport, after Vancouver. It is part of a growing trend to provide healthcare to travellers and the airport community directly at the airport, as is increasingly common in Europe and Australia.
Major European and Australian airports have been offering medical clinics and pharmacies for many years, encouraging the development of genuine healthcare hubs with the arrival of other providers, such as dentists and physiotherapists. This trend, which is highly appreciated by travellers and businesses, also benefits the people living near airports.
