BrigYour stay

The doctors and healthcare staff who will be taking care of you will introduce themselves to you personally. As we work 24 hours a day, you will inevitably be cared for by different people. From a professional point of view, this situation does not have any effect on your treatment.

All hospital staff members are bound to maintain professional and medical confidentiality. Please also be discrete in relation to other patients; they will certainly appreciate this.
