General Services ensures the proper functioning of the operating infrastructure by preventing malfunctions and correcting them as quickly as possible when they occur.
They provide an indirect but essential service to patients, since they create the working conditions for treatment (electricity, water, air conditioning, medical fluids, etc.) and, above all, they guarantee the quality of the instruments used for the diagnosis and treatment of the patient. They participate in the daily therapeutic activity of the hospital and therefore, in its sustainability.
They contribute to the management of wastewater through a water purification plant.
The general services department has a wide range of skills: civil engineers, senior technicians, maintenance technicians, electricians, plumbers, air conditioning and medical fluids technicians, biomedical technicians, morgue technicians, drivers, mechanics and supervisors.
The Centre Hospitalier Mère et Enfant is self-sufficient in water and electricity, thus guaranteeing the continuity of patient care with greater safety.
