American Hospital of Paris

The American Hospital of Paris was conceptualized by a French doctor, A.J. Magnin, M.D. and an American expatriate, Mr. Harry Antony van Bergen in 1904. With the help of a small number of dedicated donors, the hospital officially opened in 1906. Their vision was an institution that would provide Americans residing in Paris quality medical care from American-trained physicians, regardless of financial means. Over the course of its storied history, the hospital was designated a United States federal institution, converted to a military hospital during both world wars, and renovated and expanded its buildings. Despite the many changes it has experienced in more than a century, the American Hospital of Paris has remained committed to its primary objective: to offer patients the very best that American and French medicine has to offer. In 2018 alone, the hospital's more than 800 salaried employees, including 300 accredited physicians and surgeons, served thousands of patients through its direct services.
