The Centre Hospitalier Interrégional Edith Cavell, or CHIREC, consists of five hospital sites and 2 medical centres, offering treatment in every medical and surgical discipline, with the exception of cardiac surgery and interventional cardiology.

The CHIREC was born from successive mergers between several renowned hospital sites :

  • The Edith Cavell Clinic (Uccle)
  • The Parc Leopold Clinic (Etterbeek)
  • The Basilique Clinic (Ganshoren)
  • The Saint-Anne Saint-Remi Clinic (Anderlecht)
  • The Braine-l'Alleud - Waterloo Hospital

2 polyclinics are also part of this network :

  • Europe-Lambermont Medical Centre (Schaerbeek)
  • CityClinic Chirec Louise (Ixelles)

CHIREC has decided to bring together two of its Brussels sites (Edith Cavell & Parc Leopold) into one unique hospital site located in Delta (Auderghem) is scheduled for 2017.

Our personal approach

You are the patient and our attention is always focused on you. 

Our multidisciplinary teams complement each other, using all their skills to ensure that you receive the very best and most appropriate treatment. Our therapeutic approach is built on close contacts between these teams and the chosen specialist. This level of contact with specialists is maintained throughout treatment. Thanks to these personal relationships you will receive care quickly, without the need for any waiting lists.


Our philosophy

Our philosophy is based upon the following principles:

    We put quality processes in place and monitor the safety of our patients.
    There is also a strong emphasis on hospital hygiene.

    Since 2004 a medical research foundation - the CARE Foundation - has been in place, allowing our specialists to further develop their expertise. Our specialists also organise a number of international conferences.

    We respect all decisions made by our patients and their families about their care and we take everyone's religious and cultural beliefs into account.

Your well-being is our priority!
