MV SANTE Beaumont
In recent years, the ambulatory surgery has made unprecedented progress. Thanks to these advances, the patients can avoid an overnight hospital stay and are allowed to go home on the same day that a surgical procedure is performed. This ambulatory surgery centre was opened in 2014 as a result of the cooperation between the public healthcare service CHUV, a public service facility Fondation de l’Hôpital orthopédique (Orthopaedic Hospital Foundation) and the private company MV SANTE. It is located in the CHUV campus. An enthusiastic team, skilled at a number of surgical specialties and led by the anaesthetists Dr. Jean-Baptiste Favre, Deputy CAO, and Dr. Battilana Piero, as well as Mr. Didier Clipffel, Director of the Centre, welcomes you in this modern facility.

Your day surgery procedure
You are about to have a procedure at the Ambulatory Surgery Centre, MV SANTE Beaumont SA, av. de Beaumont 24C, 1012 Lausanne.

- The time of admission to the Centre.
- The map of the Centre.
- Explanations concerning the anaesthesia.
- A medical questionnaire you should complete, possibly with the assistance of your GP, and bring with you to the pre-anaesthesia assessment.
This will help your anaesthetist better prepare ahead of your meeting.
