The first in Switzerland
HUG encompasses all medical specialities within the framework of its 72 departments, headed by professors/researchers from the University of Geneva’s Faculty of Medicine.
Specific to academic medicine, this combination of expertise guarantees patients privileged access to the latest technologies and medical advances. The volume of activity distinct to a major hospital centre represents a guarantee of quality and safety.
In addition, HUG is a benchmark national centre for liver diseases in children and paediatric liver transplants, as well as for influenza and emerging viral infections. It has a high-security diagnostic laboratory (level 4).
