Gatineau Hospital chooses Prival and Stanley for the acquisition of Hugs electronic bracelets for newborns.


After the kidnapping of a baby from a hospital maternity ward in Trois-Rivières in May 2014, the Ministry of Health of Quebec asked the directors of Quebec hospitals to review the security measures in the department of obstetrics. The hospital decided to enhance security by installing cameras in the maternity ward. Despite this, two journalists who wanted to test these new measures, were able to walk easily on the newborns floor.

In October 2014, Gatineau Hospital has launched a tender to acquire Hugs electronic bracelets for babies. This installation of the new system includes chip positioning devices and bracelets. The company Prival has been chosen to implant this system because we have been able to reach the high quality criteria required.

“We are proud to have been selected by Gatineau Hospital to fulfill this mandate. That reflects the confidence that they give to our team and to Stanley’s products”
Hugo Hamel, President of Prival
