CHU Brugmann Horta joins VinylPlus® Med
CHU Brugmann Horta becomes the 9th hospital to join the VinylPlus® Med recycling scheme for PVC medical devices.
Its three additional sites and 854 beds make the Brugmann University Hospital one of the largest such centres in Brussels.
Designed by Horta, this hospital site is externally distinguished by its pavilion-based architecture and its 18-hectare park that seems like a wooded garden. The hospital has cultivated the art of innovation ever since it was inaugurated in 1923. It has played host to several medical breakthroughs, including the first heart transplant in Belgium - a tradition that continues in advanced research and innovative services such as the withdrawal methodology for addicts under total anaesthesia, non-surgical ophthalmology laser techniques, specific education for diabetics, or the continuing and palliative care mobile unit.
