A private clinic located in the heart of Geneva, the Clinique Générale-Beaulieu offers patients high-quality medical care and advanced technologies.
In 1899 physicians and surgeons founded a clinic in which to treat and operate upon their patients. Clinique Générale was located in Champel, a residential area of Geneva which is close to the city centre. Clinique Beaulieu was established fifteen years later, during World War I and, when it opened, it was the most modern in Switzerland. Seventy years later, in the summer of 1983, these two Geneva institutions united their destinies to create the Clinique Générale-Beaulieu on the site of the Clinique Générale.
Today, equipped with the most up-to-date technology and supported by a team of internationally renowned medical specialists, the Clinique has risen to the forefront of medicine, by applying its spirit of excellence to the service of every human being's most important asset – his/her health.
