Two facilites which have been custom-designed to the needs of patients receiving innovative cancer treatments are set in the main University hospital building at the CHUV:
for the outpatient care of those enrolled in early phase clinical trials (6th floor of main hospital building BH06 - opened november 2018)
which is part of a floor dedicated to the hospitalisation of patients undergoing cellular therapy requiring isolation (19th floor of main hospital building BH19 - opened may 2019)
The layout of this unit caters to the isolation needs of patients whose immune system is depleted, as a result of cancer treatment. Each room functions as an autonomous unit, with its own air-locked entrance, bathroom facilities and independent ventilation system. Patients can, if necessary, benefit from remote monitoring of their vital signs. This allows for early detection of any variations of hemodynamics or body temperature and an ensuingly speedy initiation of necessary diagnostic and therapeutic measures.
