Regarded as the oldest hospital in the city of Paris, it is the most central of the Assistance publique – hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP) hospitals. The hospital is linked to the Faculté de Médecine Paris-Descartes. It is still located on the left bank of the Île de la Cité, next to Notre-Dame where the facility was originally built between the 7th and 17th centuries.
For the last 50 years the hospital has been home to the diabetes and endocrine illnesses clinical department. It deals almost exclusively with the screening, treatment and prevention of complications associated with diabetes mellitus. It is also a referral service for hypoglycemia. It is also at the forefront of research in diabetes in areas such as new insulins and drugs, effects of nutrition, external and implanted pumps, glucose sensors and the artificial pancreas.
More recently, a major department for ophthalmology (emergencies, surgery and research) has been developed at the Hôtel-Dieu, under the supervision of Yves Pouliquen.
