To ensure that you receive your post, your correspondents should address the envelope as follows:

Patient and visitor area
The HUG information, mediation and relaxation area is located on the first floor of the Gustave Julliard building (rue Alcide-Jentzer 17, 1205 Geneva). This welcoming area is furnished with settees. Medical information and magazines are available here.
Towels and laundry
The hospital provides you with a patient gown designed for treatment. Please remember to bring your own toilet bag, pyjamas or nightdress, dressing gown, slippers, which should preferably have a back - and any other items you may need. The following hospitals provide a laundry service for your clothes, subject to a charge: Beau-Séjour, Trois-Chêne, Loëx and Bellerive and Joli-Mont hospitals, as well as the Psychiatric Hospital.
You may use your personal radio or other audio-visual equipment. Please be careful to respect other patients’ peace and quiet. Remember to store any computers out of sight if you leave the room.
Upon admission, you are asked about religious affiliation: you are not obliged to answer.
The representative of your religion or denomination may visit you and remain at your disposal. You can also ask your care staff at any time to arrange for you to see them. The chaplains serve other religious communities in the Canton and, if requested, can put you in touch with adherents of your faith. There is a room for worship or a chapel at each hospital site.
To use the telephone in your room, please contact Reception, the Admissions Office or a nurse to have the procedure printed out for you. A telephone bill will be sent to you on a monthly basis. When you leave, you have the possibility of immediately paying the sum for the current month. If you wish, you can also make an advance payment before activating your line. In this case, if the credit balance used is less than the advance payment, the difference will not be refunded to you. If you overrun your prepayment, you will be invoiced at your home address.
What would you like to eat? You can choose your meals on a daily basis, according to your state of health and your tastes.
