Day hospital


The aim of the oncology day hospital is to avoid hospitalisation with night stays while limiting the impact of the disease and its treatments on the personal, family, social and professional life of patients with cancer. 

The following may be carried out in the Day Hospital:

  • Conventional anti-cancer treatments (chemotherapy, targeted treatments, immunotherapy), as well as innovative treatments as part of clinical trials, with all pathologies and all stages included.
  • Support treatments: bisphosphonates, bone antiresorption treatment, immunoglobulins, antibiotics, intravenous iron, blood product transfusions, etc.
  • Some diagnostic and therapeutic procedures (pleural, ascites or lumbar punctures).

The Day Hospital of the Institut Jules Bordet has 12 single rooms with ensuite toilet facilities and a sampling room.

The patients are admitted from Monday to Friday, between 8.00 a.m. and 7.00 p.m.
