Regularly ranked among France's top hospitals, Lille University Hospital Center (CHRU) is now strengthening its lead—building Europe’s largest cardiothoracic institute and expanding its medical school.

Lille"s cardiothoracic center

Europe's largest cardiothoracic center

Lille University Hospital Center (CHRU) is expanding its cardiology unit, adding 40,000 sq m to create Europe’s largest cardiothoracic center, with 75,000 sq m in all. The facility will house a wide range of specialties—cardiology, thoracic and vascular medicine, cardiac emergency care, an emergency room and a poison unit. When the €173 million expansion is complete, the new center will have 498 beds.

Medical school to expand

Lille University's medical school—a stone's throw from the new cardiothoracic center—is also expanding. By the start of the 2016 school year, premises will have doubled in size from 16,000 sq m to 30,000 sq m, for a total investment of €35 million. Some 12,000 students are currently enrolled, including 3,400 in the first year alone, along with 3,000 healthcare professionals in continuing education courses.
