Our raison d'être

An institution's missions are its raison d’être. The Geneva Act entrusts three key missions to the HUG: 



A hospital for the people of Geneva

As partners of Geneva's residents throughout their lives, the HUG are committed to giving everyone access to better healthcare. From neonatology to geriatrics, mental health to palliative care, they focus on a multidisciplinary health service to provide each patient with treatment at the forefront of medical progress.

Operating on tiny Swiss hearts

Created under the auspices of the Vaud-Geneva Association, the Swiss-French academic centre of paediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery is crucial to French-speaking Switzerland. It will allow for further expansion of this activity, in which Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) and the HUG have jointly developed a high level of expertise.
