In 1903, a group of nuns from the Trinitarian Order of Avignon, forced to leave France as a result of religious persecution, took up residence in Geneva. Aided by local doctors, they founded a home to care for sick people of all religious beliefs. This home was CliniqueLa Colline, and included 15 rooms. The site chosen was the hill at Champel, on which stood a town house near where Michel Servet was burned alive on the orders of Calvin.
In 1904 the first operating room was installed. Geneva doctors schooled the nuns in how to provide medical care. Clinique La Colline’s success meant that it very rapidly became necessary to build an annex, in order to have more rooms, and add a second operating room. The newly-enlarged Clinic La Colline had a capacity of 40 beds. A new wing was added in 1925, and in 1950 the nuns began to be assisted and gradually replaced by laypersons.
In 1974, the north wing was extended to accommodate the operating theater and the radiology department, and in 1990 an outpatient clinic, a physiotherapy department and a fourth operating room were added. With the arrival of computers in 1984, the administrative aspects of Clinique La Colline were also entrusted to laypersons.
Since then, all new equipment and all extensions to the buildings have been financed in full by the company's own resources, taking care to preserve the traditional image underlying Clinique La Colline’s code of ethics.
