Chemotherapy treatments now available on the French side

MARIGOT: After a very long wait, the Louis Constant Fleming Hospital has finally obtained authorization for cancer treatment. A “clean” room specifically dedicated to the preparation of treatments has been built within the establishment.

This new care service is carried out under the responsibility of Dr. Laruelle, an oncologist, and Dr. Opsomer, head of the Pharmacy Department.

The Centralized Cytotoxic Reconstitution Unit (CCRU) was officially opened on Monday, November 22nd. It will allow patients from Saint Martin and Saint Barthélemy suffering from neoplastic pathology to benefit from chemotherapy or other cytotoxic treatments within the hospital, and therefore closer to their homes and daily lives.

This new medical service constitutes a very clear improvement for the care and quality of life of the patients of our territory suffering from oncological pathology or hematological malignancy, who were obliged to go to Guadeloupe or to give up their treatment.

The first patients were welcomed yesterday at the hospital.
