The Senior Medical Officer guarantees the spirit of excellence of the Clinique Générale-Beaulieu and is medically accountable to the cantonal health authorities. It is therefore compulsory that the activity of the Clinique and the quality of medical and paramedical teams are consistent with the standards of performance which are expected in the best medical institutions. The Senior Medical Officer also acts as an intermediary between the Clinique's Administrative Department and its patients. Therefore, for all medically or non-medically related questions, she is the main contact for hospitalised patients and their families. Furthermore, she ensures that the comfort and quality of care are related to surgical or medical treatments in accordance with the most stringent requirements. Last but not least, she is always available to provide support and assistance to medical personnel.
