Additional tools


The “Pôle Sanitaire de l’Est” (PSE) groups together various health facilities in Saint-Benoît for greater functionality. Aside from guaranteeing a high-quality health service, the PSE aims to ensure an efficient pooling and rationalising of resources. This will contribute to the development of disadvantaged areas and help ensure social cohesion.

The new construction includes three buildings: the logistic and hospital services; the emergency services and medical imaging, hemodialysis, paediatric, neonatal, archive and sterilisation services, along with the laboratory, administration, and the surgical units. The third building is the new “Clinique Médicale de l’Est”.

In all, 84 places have been created or renovated for elderly people, while 95 places have been created for other patients, and places for another 154 have been renovated.

Moreover 240 jobs are expected to be created after project implementation.
