Does anyone know if this place was once called the Royal Edward Laurentian Sanatorium? Its also listed as a TB Sanatorium in St. Agathe but I have yet to find reference stating that its name was changed. Also the Royal Edward Laurentian Sanatorium dates back to 1909.

Anyone?

Could there be 2 Sanatoriums in St. Agathe?

I just answered my own question.

Read.

In 1911, the region's first sanatorium opened in the Laurentian mountain village of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, with 45 beds, servicing those afflicted with pulmonary tuberculosis and sharing some of the patient load of the Royal Edward Institute.

In 1930, the Royal Edward Institute moved its facilities to the Montreal Chest Institute's current St. Urbain Street address. Within the following two years, it was officially recognized as a McGill University affiliated teaching hospital. A decade later, the Royal Edward Institute and the sanatorium joined to become the Royal Edward Laurentian Hospital. By 1957, the facilities in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts were closed and the construction of a new sanatorium began.



such a shame this place is gone. Is it completely erased?

Sorry, but your information is flawed. I was admitted to the Royal Edward Hospital in St Agathe in December 1957 and discharged one year later. I was 20 at the time. There was also the Mount Sanai hospital, the Jewish sanatorium A few miles away in the same town. Both sanatoriums were still very much in operation at the time. As a little extra info, while I was a patient there I met a patient named, James Johnson, an old man ( steward 1st class) who survived the Titanic disaster.
