2015 marked the end of the structural work on the third stage of the new Maternity hospital. This final phase marks the end of the expansion of this Geneva Maternity hospital, which started in 2006, financed by investment funds voted by the Grand Council.
The full opening of the new Maternity hospital is scheduled for September 2017.
After the completion of the structural work in 2015, 2016 was devoted to the interior fittings and delivery of the first equipment. The installation remains to be finalised and tests must be performed before it is put into operation.
Christened Fertisupport-HUG, the medically assisted procreation laboratory opened in spring 2016. It allows HUG’s reproduction and endocrinology medicine unit to offer comprehensive care for those wishing to have a child. This encompasses consultations, a half-day diagnostic investigation and customized treatments.
Both a medical and surgical specialty, gynecology treats intimate diseases.

Depending on the situation, you are monitored at our outpatient offices or in our hospitalization units. Regardless of your situation, our multidisciplinary teams make every effort to ensure that your stay takes place in the best conditions.
On 1 September 2017, the Maternity hospital extension was inaugurated in the presence of the authorities. This date marks the completion of a vast project that began 15 years earlier.
Expanded in stages and modernised, HUG’s Maternity Hospital will have the capacity to meet several challenges:
The HUG Gynecology Division is one of the most important in Switzerland.
It ensures that women are properly monitored and followed-up throughout their their reproductive lives and during the menopause. Its mission is to welcome the women and couples who entrust themselves to the service, with the highest standards of comfort and safety, respecting the privacy and values of all.
The service offers patients different types of consultation. The number of outpatient gynecology consultations rises to more than 46,000 per year. The units of medical oncology, surgical oncology and surgical senology (breast surgery) are committed to working together to treat gynecological and breast cancers. The Gynecological Endocrinology and Reproductive Medicine Unit is in charge of the management of problems linked to reproduction, infertility and the menopause. The Perineology Unit’s remit is the prevention and treatment of genital prolapses (“descending organs”) and urinary incontinence.
The Gynecology Division: ensures the education of specialist obstetrician-gynecologists, contributes to the medical training of medical students and takes part in the continuing medical training of qualified doctors.
Thanks to the strong emphasis on research, the division prides itself on giving patients the best possible quality of care, in line with not only federal, but also international standards.
