Clinic Saint-Jean and Cliniques de l’Europe join forces

Banner Cliniques

On June 1st, Cliniques de l’Europe and Clinic Saint-Jean became key partners. The aim of the agreement is firstly to improve hospital care through increased medical collaboration. At the same time, it is intended to foster mutual strengthening of the various support services.

This partnership agreement is an arrangement between both hospitals, with mutual priority being given with regard to the development of new medical, administrative and support projects. This collaboration is economically practical and conforms to the health policy changes adopted by various governments, which are motivating hospitals towards more networking rather than deciding to specialise. Within recent years, several shared projects coming out of unofficial partnerships have materialised. Now this agreement has become official.

“Previous successes have encouraged us to make this partnership official through a written agreement” affirm the administrative representatives for the two hospital groups*. “This is a logical partnership. We basically offer the same services and specialisations for patients with similar profiles, and we do so within the same region. This new stage called for a bold step, but such a collaboration was obviously meant to be. The decision was therefore taken to pursue the partnership process before any specific restrictive legislation is put in place.”

The partnership agreement involves to a total of six Brussels locations making up the two hospital groups. As a result of this agreement, the two partners are currently developing their shared vision of a future in which they continue to offer comprehensive, high-quality care in a modern, efficient setting.
