In the name of the "right to health", the courts put a stop to the Grand Paris Nord hospital project

The decision is unprecedented: an administrative court has annulled the declaration of public utility of France's largest hospital project, the Grand Paris Nord hospital, on the grounds that it "reduces the supply of hospital care". We take a closer look at this legal setback for the AP-HP.


During the Covid crisis, the then Minister for Health, Olivier Véran, promised that the "dogma of closing beds" was over. Today, the courts have reminded the government of its promises by cancelling, on Monday 10 July, the declaration of public interest for France's largest hospital project, worth €1.3 billion: a new 125,000 square metre hospital designed by architect Renzo Piano, which was due to open in Saint-Ouen (Seine-Saint-Denis) at the end of 2028, but which has just been delayed by a few months.
