Henri-Mondor University Hospital is a public care hospital (AP-HP) located in Créteil in Val-de-Marne (Paris).
Architectural work of Henri Pottier, it was inaugurated on December 2, 1969. More precisely, it is a university hospital center (CHU), it is linked to a faculty of medicine (2,500 to 3,000 students) and an IFSI (Institute Training in Nursing) dependent on the University Paris-East Créteil Val-de-Marne (UPEC). The UPEC School of Medicine and IFSI are adjacent to the hospital.
The main building of this hospital complex is a huge fifteen-storey bar, visible for miles around. About 40,000 patients are treated every year for a capacity of 958 beds. This hospital is the headquarters of the SAMU 94 and has a SMUR with a heliport (and a helicopter) to receive emergencies by air such as transplant transfers or transportation of patients in critical condition. The center of the SAMU 94 carries out more than 40 000 sorties a year.
The CHU works in close collaboration with two other hospitals located in Créteil: the intercommunal hospital center of Créteil (CHIC) and Albert-Chenevier hospital. It is grouped with the hospital Albert-Chenevier (AP - HP) in the hospital group Henri-Mondor - Albert-Chenevier.
