1,000th lung trans­plant in Foch !

The Mont-Valérien Fran­co-Amer­i­can Foun­da­tion, known as the Maréchal Foch Foun­da­tion, which found­ed the Foch Hos­pi­tal, still plays a cen­tral role in its management.

With 2,000 staff mem­bers (includ­ing 300 doc­tors) and 600 beds, our hos­pi­tal is one of the most effec­tive and renowned non-prof­it hos­pi­tals with a pub­lic ser­vice mis­sion in France.

The Foch Hos­pi­tal indeed pro­vides a wide range of treat­ments to adult patients in almost all of the med­ical and sur­gi­cal domains and com­mits to edu­ca­tion and research, while pay­ing cru­cial atten­tion to patient care, includ­ing through the invest­ment in cut­ting edge med­ical technology.

Foch Hos­pi­tal was grant­ed a lev­el B cer­ti­fi­ca­tion by the French Nation­al Author­i­ty for Health (“Haute Autorité de San­té (HAS)” in 2020, based on a rank­ing sys­tem going from A to E.

The hos­pi­tal stands out from the French med­ical offer by being the leader in the field of neu­ro­surgery, tho­racic surgery, gynae­col­o­gy, urol­o­gy, inter­nal med­i­cine and oncol­o­gy through inno­v­a­tive treatments.

To broad­en access to med­ical excel­lence and facil­i­tate the treat­ment of inter­na­tion­al patients, the Foch Hos­pi­tal has an Inter­na­tion­al Depart­ment, with a ded­i­cat­ed team.

Foch Hospital can indeed welcome patients needing care in any of the following services:

How to become patient at Foch Hospital?

Should you be will­ing to be cared at Foch Hos­pi­tal, please read and apply the fol­low­ing process.

Your admission to Foch Hospital

Our inter­na­tion­al Depart­ment will organ­ise your care path­way in coor­di­na­tion with the ser­vice you will be assigned to, based on the med­ical rea­son you came for.

The good roll-out of your stay will be ensured by an iden­ti­fied refer­ring doc­tor, who will work close­ly with the oth­er spe­cial­ists you may see dur­ing your treatment.

Upon your arrival

Unless oth­er­wise indi­cat­ed, present your­self with your con­vo­ca­tion at the cen­tral recep­tion desk in the hos­pi­tal hall. The recep­tion­ist will pro­vide you with a cir­cu­la­tion form and your appoint­ment pro­gramme for the day and will direct you to the sec­re­tari­at of the Inter­na­tion­al Depart­ment to con­firm the val­i­da­tion of your finan­cial cov­er and thus your admission.

At the end of your stay

Before you leave Foch Hos­pi­tal, do not for­get to pass by the sec­re­tari­at of the Inter­na­tion­al Depart­ment to retrieve your com­plete med­ical report, while orga­niz­ing the return to your coun­try of origin.

Visits of your relatives

Your rel­a­tives can vis­it you from 1 pm to 8 pm every day. Please make sure that they come as a small group.

Nurs­es can pro­vide you with rec­om­men­da­tions to be scrupu­lous­ly fol­lowed based on your health conditions.

In addi­tion, please note that for the sake of health and well-being of patients, cut flow­ers, or pot­ted flow­ers, can­not be accept­ed in all services.

Accompanying person

For patients who occu­py a par­tic­u­lar room, a mem­ber of their fam­i­ly may be allowed to stay close to them and have a meal to be cov­ered by the latter.

The nurs­ing staff can help you arrange the arrival of this accom­pa­ny­ing person.


In the event you need an inter­preter, the Inter­na­tion­al Depart­ment can pro­vide you with con­tact details of pro­fes­sion­als that you can liaise with for this purpose.


The Foch Hos­pi­tal has about 600 beds. Pri­vate rooms are allo­cat­ed based on availability.

Some­times, depend­ing on the rhythm of the depar­tures, it is impos­si­ble to attribute, at the arrival, the par­tic­u­lar room request­ed by the patient dur­ing the reg­is­tra­tion. Nev­er­the­less, the teams of the hos­pi­tal will make sure to solve this issue as soon as possible.


We offer menus adapt­ed to your tastes. If your health con­di­tions require it, our dieti­cians can design spe­cif­ic diets accord­ing to med­ical prescriptions.

Each morn­ing, a care­giv­er offers sev­er­al menus and takes your order for your meals of the day.


Dur­ing your stay at the hos­pi­tal, you can be accom­pa­nied by vol­un­teers and min­is­ters of the var­i­ous reli­gious denom­i­na­tions.
Should you want to see one of them, ask the health­care team of the ser­vice you are stay­ing in to request for a visit.

Logistics outside the hospital

Should you be look­ing for logis­ti­cal sup­port (hotel, trans­port) out­side the hos­pi­tal, we will put you in con­tact with a rel­e­vant partner.
