THE LARGEST PRIVATE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL IN THE 'ILE-DE-FRANCE' REGION

The Foch Hospital is the fruit of a generous idea that took the form of the Mont Valérien Franco-American Foundation, also known as the Maréchal Foch Foundation.

 

The "Maréchal Foch" Foundation was immediately recognised as a public interest service on its creation in 1929. The Foundation's primary mission is to provide medical and surgical treatment by operating a non-profit hospital over an unlimited time-frame, originally this was aimed at the middle classes.

The creation of the Mont Valérien Franco-American foundation (or the Maréchal Foch Foundation) by Justin Godart, ex-Health Minister, and Bernard Flursheim, Officer in charge of American Aid in Europe.

Inauguration of the Hôpital Foch, the construction of which was financed by significant private donations.

Opening of the Hôpital Foch.

The Hôpital Foch was requisitioned by the French army and later by the German army and public services.

At the end of the war the Maréchal Foch Foundation passed on the management of the hospital to the SNCF social security fund until 1995.

The Maréchal Foch Foundation entrusted the management and development of the Hôpital Foch to the Hôpital Foch Association, a non-profit organisation founded in collaboration with the "Hautes-de-Seine" regional council and the Suresnes municipal council.

The Hôpital Foch is now the biggest private university hospital in France

    With 2,000 members of staff (including 300 doctors) and 600 beds the Foch Hospital is one of the largest healthcare institutions in the Ile-de-France region; it provides 260,000 consultations (excluding maternity and emergencies) and receives more than 37,000 admissions per year.

    • MULTI-SPECIALITY HEALTHCARE

    It is now one of the most effective and reputed non-profit hospitals in France thanks to the treatment it provides to adult patients in almost all of the medical and surgical domains, its commitment to education, training and research, its cutting edge medical technology centre and its patient care policy.

    • THE FRANCO-AMERICAN FOUNDATION

    To this day the Foch Franco-American Foundation, which founded and built the Hôpital Foch, still plays a central role in the management of its strategic decisions and activities. Most of its departments continue to see an exceptionally rapid growth in patient numbers.

    ORGANISATION & GOVERNANCE

    Its missions are focussed on the strategic orientation and constant supervision of the hospital's management and activity. The board of directors makes decisions regarding the establishment's overall project, cooperative initiatives and financial aspects.
