Your stay in just a few steps

Get in touch with us

We kindly request that you send us your medical file, which will be forwarded to your assigned medical coordinator in complete confidentiality.

It is recommended that you send us a file that is as complete as possible so that we can suggest the most appropriate programme of treatment to you.

The information that we require includes the following:

  • A description of your symptoms
  • Medical reports and diagnoses
  • Medical images: ultrasound, CT or IRM files (DICOM files)
  • Laboratory results

or any other information that you consider useful.

We take both your medical and your accommodation needs into account

We will confirm receipt once we have received your request safely and will then get back in touch to find out the details of the additional services you require: the type of room, the number of people accompanying you, interpreting services, etc.

Offer regarding your care and programme of medical treatment

Once we are made aware of your needs, your coordinator will send you a personalised offer for your care, based on the doctor’s recommendations.
Your coordinator will remain at your disposal to help you with the administrative requirements: your visa application, the transfer from the airport and interpreting services in particular.

Confirmation of your stay

When you confirm your stay, we ask that you pay a deposit corresponding to the amount shown on your quotation. Your arrival can thus be planned in the best conditions.

At the end of your stay, we will refund the remaining amount of this deposit to you.

Your arrival

If you wish, we can organise your transport in a limousine or, if necessary, by medical transport. A member of our team will welcome you to the clinic and accompany you to your room.

Your stay

Your medical coordinator will be your first point of contact throughout your stay. If you have any questions of a medical nature, your medical coordinator will direct you to your medical consultant, who will be available to reply to you at all times.

At your convenience, your coordinator will be available to organise transport for you, a spa day, a tourist break in the local region or in one of the prestigious hotels of our partner hospitality group Michel Reybier Hospitality Group.

Your departure and your medical follow-up

Once your programme of treatment has been completed, your coordinator will ensure that you receive your medical report and will organise your follow-up appointment.

Following your departure, your coordinator will remain at your disposal for any questions.

Your medical coordinators

We have a team of medical coordinators, fluent in French, German, English, Italian, Russian, Arabic and Chinese, who are fully dedicated to you before, during and after your stay.

Most frequently asked questions

What languages do you speak?

Among our staff members, we have coordinators who speak the following languages: French, English, German, Russian, Italian and Chinese.
If your language is not among those spoken, we can arrange for a translator to assist you during your medical consultations and/or therapies for an additional fee.

What information do I need to provide to receive an initial offer?

It is very important to provide our medical staff with as much general and up-to-date medical information as possible (reports of previous medical consultations, laboratory results, medical imaging, etc.) 
This will enable us to create a personalised medical programme for you and to provide you with the corresponding quotation.

 

Do I have to pay for a quotation for a medical programme or treatment?

Only inquiries about oncological issues are subject to a fee.

What is an initial estimate and how is it calculated?

The initial estimate is an estimation of the costs of your treatment and is performed by our specialists based on the documents and information that you submit in advance. It is therefore extremely important that we obtain as much medical information in advance as possible, so that the estimate is an accurate reflection of reality.

What are your payment terms?

The patient has to pay the full amount of the quotation, on the day of their arrival at the clinic at the latest.
We accept payments by cash, credit card or bank transfer.
You may be entitled to a full or partial refund of the deposit, depending on the final invoice amount.

Can you help me arrange transportation to and from the clinic?

Yes. We have our own limousine service and can arrange airport transfers or any other transfers you may need during your stay.

Can you help me organise my trip to Switzerland?

Yes, we can help you with visa applications, hotel reservations (if necessary) and transportation services.

Can I bring an accompanying person to the clinic where I will be staying?

Yes, we offer facilities to accommodate an accompanying person during your stay, in your room or in a separate room/suite. 
Please contact us directly if you would like further information.

Is it possible to cater for specific eating habits such as diets/intolerances/allergies or halal products?

Yes, of course, if you provide us with information about your eating habits before your stay, we will be happy to adapt your meal options accordingly.

What additional beauty services are available in your clinics?

Some of our clinics offer hairdressing and skin care services. At your request, we can also make appointments for you if these services are not offered at the clinic where you are staying.

What happens if additional tests are needed as part of my treatment and/or if my hospital stay is extended?

Depending on medical assessments and opinions (therapeutic progress, test results, rehabilitation progress, etc.), modifications to the treatment and/or additional tests may be advised and prescribed. Any subsequent changes to the initial offer can be made with your agreement, and will be charged accordingly.

Can I leave the clinic during my stay or course of treatment?

Any request to leave is subject to prior written consent from the doctor.

Can I eat my meals somewhere other than in my room?

Most of our clinics offer high quality gourmet food, which is served in their respective restaurants.  With the exception of breakfast, which is only served in your room, you can eat your meals in the clinic’s restaurant.

Can I take my medical reports home with me?

Yes. We will send you your complete medical file as soon as we have received all the necessary information from the doctors. This file will include all medical reports, laboratory results and radiographic images (X-rays).

In what language can I receive my final medical report?

Reports can be written in English upon request. They can also be translated into other languages for an additional fee.

If I need specific medical equipment when I return home, what should I do?

Our medical team or our coordinators will help you get all the equipment you need.
