Reception

Accommodating people with disabilities

In order to better accommodate patients with physical or mental disabilities, the HUG has put in place a special system for their care. It reduces waiting times and ensures a smooth and worry-free experience. It also aims to prepare the patient's arrival at the hospital via a dedicated telephone hotline, and a discussion with the carers or helpers of patients with disabilities.

Care

Patients are welcomed at 8 hospitals, 2 clinics and 40 healthcare locations spread across the canton

Keys to communication

Some 5,000 people in Geneva live with mental retardation. At HUG, they are welcomed and treated with particular care.

In 2016, a contact disability physician was designated and specific training provided to 140 healthcare providers from the emergency and internal medicine departments.

Cinq ans après le premier coup de pioche, le nouveau bâtiment d’hospitalisation Gustave Julliard accueille ses premiers patients. Le service de chirurgie cardio-vasculaire est l’un des premiers services concerné par le transfert de ses patients dans le nouveau bâtiment.
