The building, which will be dedicated to day surgery, is equipped with state of the art technical facilities to better meet the needs of patients and those accompanying them, in terms of quality of service and comfort, and to meet demand for treatment rising at an annual average of 2.5%.
IPC3 consists of 11,000 m 2 on four floors, comprising a 20-bed day surgery unit with cafeteria, a 53-bed medical day clinic, a sample collection unit and a cell therapy* unit, a new surgical block with 11 operating theatres and a 20-bed resuscitation and continuous monitoring unit.
Three other projects accompanied the construction of IPC3: the building of a firefighters' training tower, the creation of a logistics platform and of an underground car park for 230 cars.
* The IPC is unusual as one of the few hospitals in France to have built its own internal sample collection centre and a cell therapy unit for patients from the region. It also performs more transplants than any other hospital in France.
