Overview

CHUV University Hospital Vaudois

Opened in 1982, the complex was new to Switzerland, and the locals were not ready for such a scale. A 1500-bed hospital seemed too expensive, unnecessary, and took up too much space. But now the residents of Lausanne are joking that it would be worthwhile to remove the cathedral so that it does not block the CHUV.

CHUV's first 4,700 employees were blinded by the technical excellence of their new job. "For me, it was a symbol of Swiss prosperity," said Alberto Crespo. "Even visitors from France and the United States were very impressed." Pierre-Francois Louvre first opened the door of the Center in 1981 as an intern intern: "I perceived this celebration of modern medicine as something extraordinary. This building promised a transition to perfect medicine that can withstand competition from the United States. "

And the chief cook of the central building, Jean-Jacques Rench, who came to work here in 1983, was "completely fascinated" with perfectly thought-out equipment, thanks to which the kitchen produced 4,000 complex lunches and dinners a day (today there are 5,000). True, now his memories are mixed with bitterness: "Over the years, the staff of the kitchen has been seriously reduced. We used to have time to invent new recipes. And now my chefs do not even have a free minute to taste the novelties. "

Over the years, the Hospital University Center has been constantly reorganized, and the most important step forward was its informatization. "Every year we" produced "1.4 kilometers of shelving with medical records," recalls Alberto Crespo. "It took fifteen years to digitize all this data." Conflicts between patients and their staff are another change. Thirty years ago, this did not exist. In the 1980s, the legal department of CHUV dealt with a dozen court disputes per year, today their number reaches 150.

"In 1960, at the height of financial euphoria, I wanted to construct something gigantic, but it was not known what," recalls Professor Vincent Barras of the University Institute of Medical and Health History. "The idea was to rationalize and centralize medical services," said Barras. - CHUV has become a symbol of the development of medical institutions in the second half of the 20th century, which combine research centers, student practice spaces and regional hospitals. Combining all these functions in one place is not always easy. "

"The schizophrenia with which the CHUV structures are composed so far combines" sheep "(patients)," cabbage "(students) and attracts" wolves "- famous professors to make the Center noticeable in the Swiss and international medical arena" - with ironic Admiration appreciates the Center newspaper "24 Heures". At the same time, the Hospital University Center saves the budget and at the same time develops new projects. "In a sense, CHUV is the most powerful building in Lausanne," says Vincent Barras.

There is no limit to perfection. All chambers of the main building will be gradually renovated by 2025. Medical departments are separated from scientific ones. Laboratories and administrative structures - removed from the town. A city hospital will appear to provide medical services to the population, consisting of hundreds of beds on the 11th floor of a high-rise building.

An investment of 170 million francs will allow the CHUV Children's Unit to be combined with the Lausanne Children's Hospital in the new L-shaped building next to the metro station.

Professor Jean-Francois Demont this month led the Center for the Memory Center of Leenaards, where they deal with Alzheimer's patients.

Research and training at Vaudois Hospital Center (CHUV)

Oncology department UNIL-CHUV will work from January 1, 2013. This unique cancer control center, the only one in Europe where new methods of anti-cancer therapy are developing, is headed by Professor Georges Sukos. The construction of a new building for research work is also planned.

The hospital building in Cery will be demolished, and in its place in 2015-2018 a modern psychiatric clinic will appear. "Psychiatry has seriously evolved since the 1960s," explained the head of the department of psychiatry, Professor Jacques Gasser. "The hospital has ceased to be a treatment center, we are trying to provide treatment for as many patients as possible at their place of residence."

Hospital University Center in numbers:

The roots of CHUV go back to the 13th century, when Amon of Savoy, Señor Agony and Chablais, created a hospice in Villeneuve, or a poorhouse, where they cared for the poor and pilgrims - up to 1,100 people gathered here per day. In 1810, the first sanitary law was passed in the canton of Vaud and the first cantonal hospice for incurable patients appeared. And in 1874 opened the cantonal hospital Bunyon, designed for 470 people. In 1890, the University of Lausanne created the Faculty of Medicine, and the hospital received university status.

Today, CHUV employs 9,000 people, making it the largest enterprise of the canton of Vaud. It is not only the nearest medical institution for the residents of Lausanne and the entire canton of Vaud, but also one of the five university hospitals in Switzerland (the others are located in the cantons of Basel, Bern, Geneva and Zurich), as well as the leading medical structure of Romance Switzerland. Almost 40% of CHUV employees are foreigners.

In 2009, 43 639 patients were hospitalized here, the total time of hospitalization was almost 500 thousand nights. 34,245 patients received emergency medical care. 25 146 surgeries were performed. 2603 children were born.
