Hospital opens new emergency unit

The Geneva University Hospital has opened a new emergency department after 4 years of work.

It’s hoped the renovation will improve patient care and cut waiting times.

On average, someone needing emergency care arrives at the hospital every three minutes – more than 100 every day.

The new unit – which is 3,900 m2 – is the largest in the country. 

The main change is a new reception area which the hospital says will mean people will see a doctor quicker and improves patient confidentiality.
