Healthcare - 2017 Activity report

Developing the excellence of your care

Excelling for the patient is our daily commitment in order to offer each of you the best possible care, at the cutting edge of medicine.


People cared for

Each year, an average of one in three people from Geneva receives healthcare from HUG, whether they are seen as outpatients, treated in the emergency department or hospitalised. In addition to these patients, several thousand people come from other cantons or abroad to receive highly specialist care.

Outpatient activity has stabilised with over one million people treated. Surgical activity is stable; the proportion of operations assisted by a robot is tending to increase.


300 to 350 people

require a long stay in intensive care each year. Thanks to the opening of the Julliard building, they are now monitored in a specialist unit for an extended period (12 to 18 months).


2'000 people

treated in medical rehabilitation
