AZ Delta is a large regional hospital located in West Flanders with locations in Rumbeke, Roeselare, Menen and Torhout. The merged hospital was created in 2015 after the amalgamation of the Heilig-Hartziekenhuis and the Municipal Hospital from Roeselare. In 2018 the hospital Sint-Rembert from Torhout joined the group. In 2020 a brand new building was opened in Rumbeke (Roeselare). AZ Delta now has four campuses with a total of 1,721 beds.
The oncology department is integrated in AZ Delta. We provide cancer and palliative care over the four locations (Menen, Roeselare, Rumbeke, Torhout). Oncologic care is highly sub-specialized and multidisciplinary.
The medical oncology department is managed by 7 medical oncologists.
We offer cancer care for patients with solid tumors. We work in eight
subdivisions each with their own multidisciplinary team: uro oncology, head and neck cancer, neuro oncology, EUSOMA accredited breast cancer clinic, gynecologic oncology. For respiratory oncology and digestive oncology there is a cooperation and integration with the pulmonologists and gastroenterologists.
Palliative and Supportive Care
We integrate palliative care early in the disease process of our oncologic patients. Our goal is to make palliative care available for every patient that is not treated with curative intent.
There is a close interaction and even integration between the oncology and palliative care medicine service.
The palliative medicine services consist of the palliative support team and the palliative care unit. The palliative support team is the palliative service in our hospital which is available for all patients and their caregivers and aims to support the professional caregivers in the management of palliative patients. The palliative care unit is a residential ward for terminal palliative patients.
