The Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace (CHPG) is the only public hospital in the Principality of Monaco.
The CHPG’s healthcare professionals put their skills at the service of the public and ensure patient safety and confidence by offering the highest standards of care. The hospital’s approach includes treatment, innovation, therapeutic and diagnostic research.
High technology at your service:
- a high-field 3 Tesla MRI and a multislice continuous rotation CT scanner for interventions
- Novalis Truebeam particle accelerator with infra-millimetric mechanical precision allowing to propose tailor-made treatments
- an electrophysiology room with a magnetic assisted navigation system in the Cardiology department.
- a Da Vinci Surgical System for urological, gastrointestinal and gynaecological surgery
- a Positron Emission Tomography (PET Scan), with a multislice time-of-flight continuous rotation scanner (128 slices/rotation), and two gamma cameras in the Nuclear Medicine department.
- a top-of-the-range interventional Endoscopy Department with a “Cellvizio” microscope, the smallest medical microscope in the world
Quality and personalised care are the fundamental values of the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace. Above and beyond its public service mission, it places great importance on respecting each patient’s individuality.
On 15 July 2015, the French Haute Autorité de Santé (National Health Authority) awarded the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace grade A certification “without reserve or recommendation” (the highest grade awarded to healthcare institutions).
We recommend you to do a check-up. Upon the request of each patient or following a recommendation from their general practitioner, a check-up can be planned to study a specific aspect of the patient’s health, examining one area in particular, or with a combination of examinations.
Giving a birth in Monaco
One of the best choices for the delivery of the baby is the state run Princess Grace Hospital (CHPG, Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace).
Antenatal services at The Princess Grace Hospital include a midwife who is with you throughout the pregnancy, a tour of the facilities, consultation with an anesthesiologist (if that is the mother’s wishes), pregnancy classes, and information packets explaining options for your childbirth, labor, follow-up care and experienced doctor.
After giving birth to a new life the family has four days to declare the birth at the Mairie de Monaco (Town Hall).
Giving a birth to a child in the territory of the Principality of Monaco does not mean that the child automatically receives the Monégasque nationality.
Based on law the following has Monégasque nationality:
- any person born in Monaco or abroad of a Monégasque father
- any person born in Monaco or abroad of a mother born Monégasque who still had this nationality at the time of the birth and of an unknown father;
- any person born in Monaco of unknown parents.
With regards to legitimate offspring, Monégasque nationality is passed on without it being necessary to fulfil any other condition; on the other hand, in the case of natural offspring, this handing-on of nationality only takes place if the child is recognized or legitimized by marriage of its parents.
Right after the birth you are obliged to inform the authorities of the birth and the change in your circumstances. If you are not Monégasque citizen you have to declare the birth at the Embassy of your country of origin.
