Accessibility study at the Jules-Gonin Hospital, Lausanne

Each year, the Jules-Gonin Hospital (HOJG) in Lausanne performs nearly 800 hospitalizations and more than 76,000 ophthalmic consultations, often incompatible with driving. The organization of the emergency department was redesigned in 2018 and the site will expand in the coming years. The quality of access conditions is essential to facilitate the arrival of patients and staff. The HOJG has a limited parking offer, reserved for employees and drop-offs. Access to the site by car is restricted for patients and their companions. The study consists of analyzing current practices and their future developments in order to identify the most effective measures to put in place as part of the expansion of the site.
