Completed in March 2018, the new Reims-Bezannes Polyclinic is dedicated to providing acute care (medicine, surgery and obstetrics). The facilities comprise a 30,000-sq.m main building owned by Icade Santé and operated by the Courlancy group, as well as two other buildings totalling 12,000 sq.m owned by practitioners and featuring doctors’ offices, a radiology department, a medical laboratory and a nuclear medicine department. The Reims Bezannes Polyclinic development project received the “Best Healthcare development” award at the 2019 MIPIM Awards ceremony.

By combining functionality and quality of life, the Courlancy Polyclinic departs from traditional rules in order to open up to the world with flexible and adaptable spaces in line with modern, office architecture trends. The facilities are distributed in a linear pattern where buildings are placed next to one another and merged to form a whole. This specific distribution allows for the necessary proximity of the buildings and for subsequent additions of units, without constraining the buildings’ shapes or functionalities.
As part of its partnership with the Courlancy group, Icade Santé is breaking new ground by developing, with the assistance of a start-up, the first service for the geolocation of patients and their portable lockers in ambulatory care units: Ambu’Stage.
Outpatients receive smart wristbands that allow caregivers to locate them in the unit, track their movements and keep their families informed while they are at the hospital. Similarly, the geolocation of portable lockers optimises their management.
This service, which improves the efficiency of outpatient care, significantly assists the staff and contributes to improved patient experience.
The building complex has received HQE certification with an “Excellent” rating with particular attention paid to the building’s eco-design together with air and water quality, in line with the polyclinic’s operations.
The facility has also been awarded the “Reims Sustainable City” label, which recognises the vision that Icade shares with local authorities in terms of urban development and green construction.
