The Centre Léon Bérard is organized in units, technical facilities and hospitalization units for diagnosis, care, and global management of cancer on only one site.

The different units are the following: 

The Leon Berard Center’s different departments are:

- Anatomopathology and Cytology: an essential role for tumour diagnosis, screening and research assistance.
- Anaesthesia and Resuscitation: covers anaesthesia in its own right but also post-op care, nutrition, the fitting of implantable devices, catheters and pain management.
- Medical Oncology: a care and research activity which provides cancer treatment (chemotherapy, hormone therapy, cell therapy and targeted treatment).
- Surgery: based on the primary treatment of cancer, reconstructive surgery and metastatic surgery.
- Coordination of External Care and Interfaces (DCSEI): organises home medical care for patients and manages the centre’s 200 places for home hospital care.
- Nuclear Medicine and Radiological Protection: essentially diagnosis, particularly in bone examinations. It also provides metabolic radiotherapy (to treat thyroid cancer in particular) and offers PET Scans.
- Pharmacy: oversees the management of the central pharmacy
- Imaging – Radiology and MRI/Scans: performs most medical imaging functions (ultrasound, mammography, scans, MRI), interventional radiology and guided micro-biopsy or by fine needle aspiration.
- Radiotherapy: receives some 2,000 patients every year for out-patient treatment or full hospital care, and 270 patients for brachytherapy. It is equipped with one of the most modern technical support centres in the region with 5 accelerators.
- Public Health: plays an instrumental role in all of the centre’s evaluation processes, as well as in clinical research and therapeutic education.
- Nursing Care: pools all carers and is responsible for the global management and coordination of patient care.
- Patient Support Care in the field of Oncology (DISSPO): pools the medical psychology unit, psycho-oncology, pain management, sophrology, physical therapists, dieticians and social services for patients.
- Analysis Lab: performs biochemical, haematological, bacteriological and virological examinations for cancer diagnosis and treatment follow-up. This laboratory is based on the various sites of the Hospices Civils de Lyon.
Children receive care at the Institute of Paediatric Haematology and Oncology (IHOPE), a health cooperation group set up by the Hospices Civils de Lyon (HCL) and the Centre Léon Bérard in order to offer optimal care to children and adolescents suffering from cancer. Consultations have been set up in the HCL’s Hôpital Femme Mère Enfant (HFME) for women, mothers and children, and hospital care is provided in a specialised unit on the CLB site.
