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.
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 informs, screens, and treats women and girls who have sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
If detected in time, most STDs are cured. Untreated, they can have serious consequences, such as infertility, extrauterine pregnancies, and chronic pain, and they significantly increase the risk of HIV infection. In Switzerland, it is estimated that more than 50% of cases of chlamydia and gonorrhea affect women 15 to 24 years of age.
Electrocardiography (ECG) is a graphical representation of the electrical activity of the heart.
To perform this examination, care providers place electrodes on your chest, connected to a device.
This examination is painless.
Therapeutic abortion after 12 weeks of gestation due to fetal malformation or threat to the mother's life.
Drug inducement followed by curettage under anesthesia.
