HOSPITAL NEAR ST. REMY DE PROVENCE

We've rented a house in St. Remy and my 7 year old grandaughter will be visiting.
She has nut/mustard allergies and my daughter has asked where the nearest hospital is.
Is there someone who can answer that question?

Many thanks.

Lyn

Wouldn't the person/agency from which you rented the house be able to tell you the nearest facility for a medical emergency?

If you know she has these allergies you should always carry an EpiPen - since getting to a hospital may take too long if the reaction is severe.

Many thanks, kerouac . That was exactly the information we needed.

nytraveler, of course we always have an EpiPen with us. Why would you assume otherwise?

I saw that it has the function as well, but it also does general medicine.

A number of years ago my mother, who had several chronic medical problems and traveled to Europe frequently, joined IAMAT (International Association for Medical Assistance to Travellers) www.iamat.org . They provided her with a list of doctors and hospitals, and she was pleased with the help from one of their doctors when she became ill in Portugal.

There is no fee to join, although they do welcome donations. They might be a good source of information for you, as well as assistance if needed.

Centre Hospitalier d'Avignon
305, Rue Raoul Follereau
84000 Avignon, France
04 32 74 25 37‎

is actually just 17 km away (26 minutes according to Google maps).

There is a small hospital IN St Remy de Provence but it is listed as a "convalescnce" hospital. This may mean that it does not offer emergency department services 24/7.

And perhaps just important is this list of ambulance companies:

GLANUM
ZA de la Gare.
Tél. 04 90 92 11 88

LES ALPILLES
ZA de la Gare.
Tél. 04 90 92 15 78

NOAILLES
34 Avenue Albert Gleize.
Tél. 04 90 92 03 72

cited here: http://www.saintremy-de-provence.com...ite/ssante.htm

...though the equivalent of > (used in the US, not sure what is the equivalent in the UK) is > for "SAMU" (emergency medical assistance).

Best wishes,

Rex

Hi Lyn
I live in St. Remy most of the year. There are hospitals at Arles and Avignon. Both offer excellent care. There is no hospital in St. Remy but we do have a very caring, English speaking doctor named Alain Ghandour. I can't imagine that he wouldn't help you should you run into trouble. If you would like more info feel free to email me. I'm in the US right now and don't have Dr. Ghandour's number but I can get it for you if you'd like. As someone suggested above, the folks from whom you rented should be able to give you an emergency number. Have fun!--Julie from ProvencePost.com

One more piece of information - someone mentioned a list of ambulances - but these are not emergency vehicles in France. An Ambulance here is a kind of medical taxi. If you have an emergency, you should phone 15 (SAMU - Service d'Aide Medicale d'Urgence) or 112, the European emergency number.

The person answering your call will assess what kind of treatment is needed, and send a SAMU vehicle - what North Americans call an ambulance if necessary. In fact in extreme cases this may even be a helicopter - they have been known to land on the football field in our village of 600 people.
