The building covers about 18,000m2, and will house, in particular :
- all technical / maintenance services,
- access for bed-ridden patients,

The delivery of the second phase, which covers the Cardiology Intensive-Care Unit and the first four operating facilities, is planned for March 2017. A new 180-bed accommodation wing will be delivered in September 2017. The work also includes two new successive phases of renovation and extension work on the existing building (the South half followed by the North half). All extension and renovation work should be completed in June 2020, taking the area covered by the ICP (Institut Cœur Poumon – Hearth & Lung Institute) to 75,000m2, making it Europe’s largest cardiothoracic hospital.
