CHPG: 80 000 patients in 2018

15 January 2019 - 17h08

On the occasion of the CHPG greetings ceremony and with the presence of Prince Albert II, its director Benoîte de Sevelinges indicated that more than 80 000 patients came to be treated at least once in 2018. Concerning the stays, 92% declared themselves satisfied.

The director specified that the CHPG would have to continue moving forward in a budget deficit context at least until the delivery of the new hospital. Among the reasons explaining this deficit, the pursuit of restructuring in the current establishment. In 2018 the Maternity and Orthopaedic surgery services were completely renovated.

The blood transfusion centre and the new testing centre of the laboratory will be put into service in 2019. The Sovereign declared to be delighted to inaugurate both very soon. A new interventional radiology room, an extension of the nuclear medicine department and at the end of the year the opening of the new consultation platform at the Louis II pavilion (digestive surgery, hepato-gastro-enterology and urology) are also expected.

Regarding the new CHPG, Benoîte de Sevelinges indicated that “the project is currently rebounding, with the revival of a number of studies that will lead to more scalability and functionality”.
