Lake Geneva’s incubator

Thanks to its university hospitals, research centres and numerous start-ups specialising in healthcare, the Lake Geneva region is a leader in the field of medical innovation. Because of this unique know-how, it is sometimes referred to as the “Health Valley".

Each issue of In Vivo Magazine, published by CHUV and produced in conjunction with the LargeNetwork agency, starts with a depiction of the region, a map produced by a renowned visual artist, illustrator or graphic designer.

Staying in the region?

Hôtel des Patients is a modern and comfortable 3-star superior hotel within the grounds of the Lausanne University Hospital. It offers a spectacular view over the lake.

As the first establishment of its kind in Switzerland, the Hôtel des Patients is a concept that draws on the success experienced by Scandinavian countries. Its clientele includes passing tourists, business travellers, the families of patients, not forgetting the patients themselves. Discover this unique concept!
