Located on a site of 125,000 m², the 52,000 m² short-term hospital was built with a capacity of 272 beds, combined with an ambulatory care centre. It replaced the existing Pierre-Le Gardeur Hospital, which has since been transformed into a residential center. Through design decisions, the project has been designed for long-term flexibility and provides separate access and traffic for visitors, staff, ambulances and delivery trucks.
The concept was developed around a linear garden, grouping functions into three blocks: care units, diagnostic and therapeutic services, and ambulatory services. The new hospital incorporates the most avant-garde concepts and trends. It includes an ambulatory hemato-oncology unit, an operating unit including a sterilization unit for 9 operating rooms, circulation areas arranged on a double corridor principle, an emergency of 37 stretchers, outpatient clinics, an MRI scan, 2,000 m² of diagnostic laboratories (histology, culture room and microscope, auxiliary uses), a department of rehabilitation and administrative spaces. It includes a food service to serve nearly 300 beneficiaries and staff. The project was designed to expand the three functional blocks.
