The HUG Department of Surgery consists of eight medical services :
The Joli-Mont Rehabilitation and Internal Medicine Division is involved in the postgraduate training of residents at the General Internal Medicine Division (SMIG) and at the Trois-Chêne Hospital, which is carried out as part of their four-month rotation in rehabilitation.
During their rotation, the organization of the Division offers residents the opportunity to attend postgraduate training symposiums organized by the SMIG, in parallel with training symposiums organized on site.
The Joli-Mont Clinic ensures the treatment of patients who require rehabilitation, usually following an acute medical issue or a surgical procedure.
Through notarial act on September 23, 1876, and in memory of her late father, Baron Anselm von Rothschild, Baroness Caroline Julie von Rothschild, wife of Baron Adolphe Carl von Rothschild, founded a charitable organization for incurables and convalescents.
The Clinic receives patients in continuing treatment for medical and surgical conditions, including orthopedic conditions. It offers multidisciplinary treatment focused on rehabilitation, by integrating the specific needs of the elderly patient, the physical and psychological symptoms, and the patients’ medical and social problems. The objective of the stay is to reestablish autonomy for a return to home in good condition.
The Clinic also receives patients in palliative care, with an objective of end-of-life support.
Patients may be sent by other HUG Divisions or by private facilities, or directly from home.
Switzerland's number one hospital for orthopedics and trauma care, HUG has already demonstrated its expertise in this area. By creating a Center For Musculoskeletal And Sports Medicine, it has confirmed its leading position and provides optimal care to both everyday patients and sports stars.
