HELPING PATIENTS IN NEED
In 1986, a group of committed doctors working at the Clinique de Genolier set up Genolier Foundation – a charitable foundation dedicated to helping patients in need.
Taken over by Swiss Medical Network in 2014, this foundation has continued to evolve ever since. Originally active only in Genolier, it now extends to the whole of Switzerland, and covers disabling, serious or chronically progressive diseases.
Founded at Clinique de Genolier, the foundation is committed to saving lives and caring for patients in need.
