The Cliniques universitaires Saint-Luc (UCL-St-Luc) is a non-profit-making (ASBL) hospital associated with Université catholique de Louvain, and situated in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert, Brussels, Belgium. The hospital opened on 23 August 1976.
In 1968 the Catholic University of Louvain acquired some land in the east of Brussels which did not have a large hospital at that time. When the university split into two the French-speaking part moved to Ottignies except for the medical faculty and health sciences sector, which moved to the Brussels site.
Being a teaching and university hospital UCL St.-Luc continues to do ground breaking medical research. For example, the first baby born after ovarian transplant and the first photograph of human ovulation.
