CHU Brugmann is a public general and university hospital comprising three sites: the Horta site (Laeken), the Brien site (Schaerbeek) and the Reine Astrid site, located in the military hospital in Neder-Over-Heembeek. Designed in a large park planted with trees in 1923 by the famous architect Victor Horta, the Horta site, a pavilion structure, is particularly remarkable on the architectural level.

CHU Brugmann also houses, with more than 3,400 deliveries a year, the largest maternity unit in Brussels, which is particularly specialised in the monitoring of high-risk pregnancies and foetal medicine.
