The new Clinique du MontLégia hospital in Glain near Liège covers 113,000 m². It has 764 beds and can welcome 155 day patients. The goal of the project was to bring the CHC’s three clinics together in one place.
The CHC had two needs which conditioned the overall organisation of the building, i.e., separating the mother/child unit from the other general services and putting it alongside the medical and technical services.
The Clinic was designed based on that juxtaposition concept. The adult care, mother/child, and medical and technical units are separate, creating different flows and ensuring that hospitalised patients don’t come into contact with visitors.
The medical offices on the ground floor were set up around an interior street, which is the backbone of the project and the heart of the Clinic’s activities.
The care units are laid out in the shape of a cross and were designed to reduce the distances covered by the healthcare staff to a minimum. Another asset of the project is clearly the use of natural light, which comes through the large bay windows throughout the Clinic.
