Clinique Générale Beaulieu in Switzerland
The Clinique Générale-Beaulieu was founded in August 1899.
Multi-disciplinary in its approach, the clinic counts more than 400 staff and nearly 600 licensed physicians. A total of 134 beds are available.
The facilities include six nursing units, seven operating theatres, one reanimation center, as well as six specialty centres of international reputation :
- The Institute of Radiology
- The Institute of Nuclear Medicine
- The Robot-Assisted Laparoscopic Surgery Center
- The Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) Center
- The Maternity Unit
- The Physiotherapy and Functional Rehabilitation Center.
The Institute of Radiology has seven radiologists working with the latest magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan for investigating the central nervous (brain and spinal cord), digestive, urinary and osteo-articular systems.
Institute of Nuclear Medicine, the largest privately owned structure for nuclear medicine in Geneva, has its own team and was proud to own the first positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scanner in Switzerland. This state-of-the-art isotopical imaging technique is considered as the most sensitive method available in modern oncology.
The Robot-Assisted Laparoscopic Surgery Centre that opened in 2003, features the Da Vinci S® robot, one of the world’s best technologies. This equipment is notably used in the treatment of prostatic cancer (urology).
The ART center, which is managed in partnership with Unilabs laboratories and a team of gynecologists specialised in reproductive medicine, a urologist and a biologist, was inaugurated in 2005.
The Maternity Unit, modernized in 2005, has three delivery rooms, a nursery and one neonatal unit. The Physiotherapy and Functional Rehabilitation Center is run by team of dedicated physiotherapists and counts a unit devoted to sports medicine.
The operating room performs an average of 7500 operations a year, backed-up by the latest equipment, notably in the new integrated theatres.
More than 50 medical practices established in the neighbourhood and covering all specialties collaborate with the clinic.
Over 6000 patients with an average stay of 5 days were treated in 2006. The Maternity Unit saw the birth of 557 babies the same year.
