2. We take both your medical needs and your accommodation needs into account

We will confirm receipt once we have received your request safely and will then get back in touch to find out the details of the additional services you require: the type of room, the number of people accompanying you, interpreting services, etc.

Accommodation for your accompanying persons

Our medical coordinators are able to offer you various accommodation options for your accompanying persons: with you, in your room (maximum of one person) or in a junior suite.

3. Offer regarding your care and programme of medical treatment

Once the preparation work has been done, your coordinator will send you a personalised offer for your care, based on the physician’s recommendations.

Your coordinator will remain at your disposal to help you with the administrative requirements: your visa application, the transfer from the airport and interpreting services in particular.

4. Confirmation of your stay

Once you confirm your stay, we will ask you for a deposit corresponding to quoted amount. This will enable us to prepare for your arrival in the best possible way.

At the end of your stay, we will refund the remaining amount of this deposit to you.

If need be, we can help you to secure a visa by sending you a letter of invitation once you confirm your stay.

5. Your arrival

If you wish, we can organise your transport in a limousine or, if necessary, by medical transport. A member of our team will welcome you to the hospital and accompany you to your room.

6. Your stay at Privatklinik Bethanien

Your medical coordinator will be your first point of contact throughout your stay. If you have any questions of a medical nature, your medical coordinator will redirect you to your referring doctor, who will be available to reply to you at all times.

At your convenience, your coordinator will be available to organise transport for you, a spa day, a tourist break in the local region or in one of the prestigious hotels of the Michel Reybier Hospitality.

7. Your departure and your medical follow-up

Once your programme of treatment has been completed, your coordinator will ensure that you receive your medical report and will organise your follow-up appointment.

Following your departure, your coordinator will remain at your disposal for any questions.
