In memoriam Herbert De Raedt

In june 2023, our dear colleague and friend Dr. Herbert De Raedt sadly passed away.

As a cardiologist and intensivist, he worked in the nineties at the intensive care department of the university hospital of Antwerp. In the beginning of this century he moved to OLV hospital Aalst  to establish and expand the CCU with great success. Since 2022 he was officially retired, but his patients couldn’t miss him and probably also vice versa, so he was still active in the outpatient clinic of OLV Aalst.

He was a very active member of the BIWAC from the very early beginning and has been an excellent secretary for more than 10 years.

We  remember him as a very friendly, humble, attentive, helpful and intelligent man, who seamlessly put his knowledge of cardiology and critical care at the service of many patients. He had a broad cultural interest and knowledge and loved to talk about many aspects of life around a table with a good glass of wine. 

We miss him a lot ! Our thoughts and support go also to his lovely wife and his family. We wish them all the strength to overcome this great loss.
