The women - children - haematology centre is an important stake for the Teaching Hospital of Caen. It is the opportunity to renew the hospital’s image by expressing the modernity and efficiency of the treatments, as well as the quality of reception for patients.

All of the accomodation units are assembled within the four floors of the medical care aisle. it’s unit organization allows for an optimal functionality. Indeed, same field of activities are grouped on each level.

The construction of this women - children - haematology centre, in a hospital environment, bathed in natural light, offers a comfortable, pleasant and effective surrounding for all its users, be it patients, doctors or just visitors.
