Edith Cavell hospital prepares for move to Auderghem

Nov 12, 2017

The number of babies born in Uccle will nosedive from next month when one of Belgium's busiest maternity wards moves to a brand new home.

Edith Cavell hospital - named after the British nurse and first world war hero - welcomes 3,200 babies into the world each year. From 9 December, the first mums in labour will be admitted to maternity facilities at a newly built hospital at Delta in Auderghem (pictured).

The current site in Uccle, on the road bearing Cavell's name, will be demolished to make way for 150 mostly two- and three-bedroom apartments, shops and parking spaces. A very small part of the Cavell site, on Rue Vanderkindere, will remain a medical facility.

The sale generated €28 million for the hospital's parent organisation, Chirec, which also operates clinics at Parc Léopold, Ganshoren, Anderlecht and Braine l'Alleud.

The property development, which has a €70 million budget, is subject to a public consultation which closes on 20 November. A final decision on the project will be made by the municipality on 6 December.

Shops in the neighbourhood are worried about loss of trade between the hospital's closure next month and the planned completion of the building project in 2021.
