The new treatment area of the Radiotherapy Department of the Princess Grace Hospital (CHPG), which has been completely renovated, was inaugurated on Tuesday, March 27, and named “Treatment Soace Michel Héry”, in tribute to the former head of department, who died in 2013.

Dr Cécile Ortholan, current Head of the Department of Radiotherapy, made a tribute to her predecessor, in the presence of Minister for Social Affairs and Health Didier Gamerdinger, the Director of the Princess Grace Hospital Patrick Bini, and the widow of Michel Héry: “Michel Héry was one of the pioneers of radiotherapy, a builder and visionary. He founded the Radiotherapy Department 25 years ago at the CHPG and treated many patients with humanity and rigour.

“He has also participated in the creation of two congresses: the Biennale of Oncology and Monaco Age Oncology.”
