The academic medical center of the "Université Libre de Bruxelles" (Brussels, Belgium). It originally opened its doors in 1977 and currently employs around 3 000 staff, who provide treatment for about 260 000 outpatients and 26 000 inpatients in 858 beds each year.
Our mission is to provide superior health care, ever mindful of each patient's dignity and individuality, and to deliver services in a way that meets the needs and expectations of our patients and their families.
While the majority of patients are recruited in Brussels and in the central provinces of Belgium, the Hôpital Erasme maintains a national and international reputation for clinical practice, research and education. Patients from all parts of Belgium and abroad make use of our highly specialized facilities. Teachers and researchers at the Hôpital Erasme have a long tradition of collaboration with colleagues throughout Belgium and other countries.
Every year, 300 medical students and many other nursing and physical therapy students are educated or receive practical work experience at the Hôpital Erasme.
