New paediatrician in Monaco

The Principality will this week welcome paediatrician Dr. Stéphanie de Smet to the ranks of the SAMU 06. Dr. de Smet will be a hospital practitioner in the resuscitation and neonatal department and will lead neonatal and paediatric services.

Paediatricians are responsible for the health of children aged from 0 to 18 years and play a vital role with families.

“In view of the needs of the population, it was essential to recruit a paediatrician who supports the health of children and maintains a relationship of confidence in parents from birth to adulthood,” said the minister of Social Affairs and Health Didier Gamerdinger.

Appointments can be scheduled on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8am to 1pm and 2pm to 6.30pm. Tuesday hours are from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 9pm.

Time slots will be provided every morning to accommodate children in emergency situations. The ward is located on the ground floor of 26 rue Grimaldi – 98000 Monaco, telephone:
