Oppenheim...'Swiss excellence in healthcare is well known to
Arab audiences'

Swiss medical tourism to see influx of ME patients

SWITZERLAND, February 7, 2018

Medical tourism in Switzerland is expected to boom this year as more and more Middle East travellers are opting for Swiss medical checks and treatments.

According to Andres Oppenheim, general manager of the renowned Nescens Clinique de Genolier: "The current US policies targeting certain Arab countries is driving more and more Middle East patients to Switzerland in search of high-class medical treatment and hospitality."

The luxury clinic, which is exclusively dedicated to preventative medicine and anti-aging programmes, is part of the renowned Swiss Medical Network which combines more than 1,250 doctors and specialists all over Switzerland

“The Swiss Medical Network, and the Nescens Clinique de Genolier in particular, are already very well established in this market and we expect a growing number of discerning Middle Eastern travellers who demand the very best in medical treatment and hospitality.”  

Oppenheim, who has been attending the Family Office Forum in Dubai this week, said: “People in the Middle East who need an immediate medical solution will always find it because they’re strongly connected to top hospitals and clinics worldwide. In fact they have very good hospitals here so they don’t even need to get on a plane.
“But a lot of people here who look after their personal health capital are used to travelling to the US for checks up and treatments at some of the leading hospitals and clinics there. Now, however, because of the current situation in the US, they are no longer keen to travel there."

"At the same time they know they will always be very well received in Switzerland. Swiss excellence in specialist healthcare and hospitality is well known to Arab audiences," he said.

Offering discreet, bespoke services for short, medium and long-term stays, the Clinique provides preventative and regenerative medicine, genetic screenings, nutrition advice, physical and osteo-articular care, as well as aesthetic medicine and anti-aging programmes. Patients can book their stays in residences offering a full range of five-star hotel services.

Middle East visitors can access additional services such as the clinic’s centre of expertise in physiotherapy, sport coaching, stem cell treatments, aesthetic medicine and dental care, all offered in an exclusive setting with first-class services.

Nestled high above Lake Geneva, the clinic is located within the world renowned Clinique de Genolier.
