The Regional Hospital Centre (CHR) Citadelle is a public, 1036-bed hospital, in the heart of the city of Liège. It employs more than 400 physicians and over 3508 people in total.

The nephrology, immunology and infectious diseases ward is ruled over by 8 internist physicians. They divide their time among holding office hours, supervising hospital beds and dialysis sessions. 

The dialysis ward manages chronical treatment of over 150 patients (grown ups and children). Haemodialysis, the main activity (with 40 stations), takes place on the CHR site itself, having at it's disposal the most modern monitoring equipment (the haemodiafiltration being given priority), and possessing a staff of 50 qualified nurses.

In addition, there are two self-care dialysis units, with each 5 relocated haemodialysis stations, one of them at the "Chateau Rouge" site in Herstal, and the other at the Val d'Or hospital in Grivegnée. Beyond daily activity, the Chäteau Rouge Centre offers evening treatment opportunities on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights until 23 pm,  the Val d'Or centre allowing haemodialysis for on-site hospitalized patients and those in rehabilitation. As far as possible, home dialysis (peritoneal dialysis and haemodialysis) is offered as well. 

The treatment of acute dialysis takes primarily place in the intensive care units at the CHR location, either by the intermittent long haemodialysis "SLEDD" technique - thanks to 6 mobile Genius° monitors -, or by the continuous dialysis "CVVHDF" technique, with 4 Prismaflex° monitors. 

Finally, we apply apheresis (plasmapheresis, erythrapheresis and cytapheresis)
techniques thanks to 1 Spectra Optia° monitor :

The clinical infectiology activity is structured around general and specialized office hours providing treatment of HIV patients, the specific supervision of the hospital beds, and infectiologist advice for the whole set of the institution units.

The "Travelling Clinic" would suggest adapted advice for whatever trip in the world, in collaboration with our paediatrician-infectiologists.   

Holiday Makers are welcome (through prior arrangement), some of the members of our staff speaking Dutch, German, English, Italian, Spanish, Croatian and the Arabic language in addition to French.

To the greatest possible extent, our service privileges resort to kidney tranplant, or even combined transplants (such as kidny-pancreas, kidney-liver, kidney-heart transplants), in collaboration with the universitary transplantation units. The follow-up of the patients is being provided by our service.

22 575 haemodialysis - including 678 intensive care - sessions, have been managed by our service in 2014
