    The "Soeur de la Providence" took a piece of land in 1868 with the idea of building a vast santorium in the country. In 1890 a fire razed the whole complex, temporary buildings were built right away to continue the health care.

    In 1896 new drawings were made to build a vast sanatorium hospital, the biggest in Canada, the plans were somewhat similar to the kirkbride style with a main building and wings going from both side.

    The new building would be state of the art with full steel structure, brick flooring, wide kitchen, ceramic tiles, a small tramway would be drove through a tunnel to reach both side of the hospital, steel staircases, a central boiler room, electricity lightning, water hydrolic elevators, moved by the pressure of the water tower, more than 1500 patients would be taken care of in the building.
