U55 (orthopaedics, pneumology, endoscopy, somnology)
the team / contact information
WELCOME TO UNIT 55!
Our unit is a short stay unit. This means that we do not admit any patients on weekends. We manage minor surgeries, endoscopy, and the sleep laboratory (4 nights, for which 6 rooms are equipped).
The ultimate goal being that all the patients are able to leave the floor on Fridays and, if necessary, can be transferred somewhere else.
We have double rooms and private rooms (with a total of 30 beds).
Meals are adapted to your diets on the basis of a questionnaire that you will have completed beforehand.
You may also benefit from the visit of a dietician by request.
Breakfast: 8.45am, lunch: 12.45pm, dinner: 5.30pm.
