The American Hospital of Paris, founded in 1906, is a private, not-for-profit hospital that is considered agréé/non-conventionné under the French healthcare system. Located in Neuilly-sur-Seine, in the western suburbs of Paris, France, it has 187 surgical, medical, and obstetric beds.
The Hospital has an extensive Ancillary Services Department, equipped with modern diagnostic and treatment material. The Outpatient Consultation Department's 150 physicians cover every major medical and surgical specialty. The Emergency Department's emergency care physicians provide immediate care to patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The medical staff includes over 500 physicians and surgeons. These private practitioners are credentialed by the Hospital through a thorough and strict selection process.
The American Hospital of Paris is the only civilian hospital in Europe accredited by The Joint Commission (TJC), an independent organization that accredits hospitals in the United States. It is also accredited in France by the Haute Autorité de santé (HAS).
Recognized as an institution of public benefit, the American Hospital of Paris receives no government subsidies from either France or the United States. Instead, the hospital relies on the generosity of its private and corporate donors from all nations.
