CHU Saint-Pierre is a general public and university hospital situated in the heart of Brussels. It uses two sites, the Porte de Hal site in the Marolles quarter and the César De Paepe site located close to the Brussels’ Grand-Place. Constructed in 1783 in an old leprosarium, the Porte de Hal site was extensively and repeatedly re-designed, the most recent wave of renovations of which will be completed in 2018.
CHU Saint-Pierre is well-known for its reception which is particularly accessible to all patients, and for its highly performing emergency service. CHU Saint-Pierre also has an international reputation in infectious medicine, particularly in the fields of tuberculosis and HIV, for which it furthermore acts as a national referral centre.
CHU Saint-Pierre also has a substantial maternity unit (more than 3,200 deliveries a year).
