Corporate Foundation

Mission and administration

Originally focused on umbilical cord blood donation, the Ramsay Santé Corporate Foundation is now focusing its efforts on Preventative Healthcare.
To take action where it is needed most, the Corporate Foundation has developed pioneering programmes to promote prevention by informing, educating and raising awareness amongst the general public. In addition, it seeks to encourage people to act by developing partnerships and leveraging the targeted expertise of healthcare professionals, scientists, startups, charities and more.

A choice much in keeping with the Group’s role as a healthcare provider, to boost, unite and galvanise a community of generations that believe prevention is the best way to stay in good health throughout one’s life.
