For almost a hundred years, the Clinique des Grangettes has developed in parallel with the progress of modern medicine. Thanks to its experience, it now meets the highest standards of performance and safety.

The origins of the Clinic

In 1918, the great Spanish flu epidemic swept through Geneva. Barbara Borsinger, a native of Baden, Germany, was moved by the plight of the sick children. To care for them, she founded the "Pouponnière de L'Oeuvre des Amis de l'Enfance". In 1933, she extended her activity to the care of adults and moved to Chêne-Bougeries. The Clinique des Grangettes was born. The institution includes a maternity and general surgery department. It also includes a school for the training of nursing staff.

The creation of new units

From 1957 to 1978, the nuns of Menzingen took over the management of the establishment. They set up new wards, including one of the first wards for premature babies, and developed the nursing school, which became known far beyond the borders of Europe.

Constant development

From 1980 onwards, the Clinic was entrusted to a management committee made up of several prominent figures from Geneva. This committee continued to modernise and develop the clinic by introducing new medical services such as orthopaedics, cardiology, post-operative continuing care and an emergency service. In 1987, the clinic was transformed into a limited company and a year later, a huge modernisation was undertaken. Since then, it has never ceased to be at the cutting edge, both in terms of services offered and medical equipment.
