Why a holistic approach?
Arnaud Marche: It’s obvious to me. Taking charge of the body and mind makes our personalized programs more effective.
What new impulses do you want to give to the hospital activity?
José Lopez: It is important to ensure the continuity of our know-how. Dynamism and pro-activity guide us, in order to maintain the quality of our services. Continuous investments in new infrastructure and the supply of new medical specialties are required every year.
How do the medical services come into play in your offers?
Arnaud Marche: Each treatment starts with a medical check-up and is set under the supervision of a doctor. The first consultation is extremely important. It helps identify our clients' needs and desires.
What do you think is the definition of an “ideal clinic”?
José Lopez: One where patients are optimally cared for with attentive staff. An institution that offers a progressive medicine with caregivers constantly trained in the latest medical practices.
Arnaud Marche: An exceptional setting offering a cozy atmosphere, a deeply private atmosphere that is soothing and reassuring. A culture of innovation as well as personalized aesthetic treatments within the framework of perfectly studied programs.
Is it easy to combine health and beauty in a single establishment?
José Lopez: At Clinique La Prairie, health and beauty are intimately linked. Internal communication, at the center of our values, facilitates cohesion and mutual assistance between our various services.

How to understand this notion of medicine both restorative and aesthetic?
Arnaud Marche: It’s a comfort medicine. Each of us may want to mitigate the marks of age, injuries or old diseases. The repair surgeon must meet this request. In the aesthetic field, we have to deal with clients who want to feel younger. It's about improving the customer's quality of life.
