Ramsay Santé

  • After creating a dedicated department in September 2020, Ramsay Santé, one of the European leaders in private hospitalization and primary care, reveals its CSR roadmap.
  • The action plan is based on commitments to the group's main stakeholders: patients, employees, private practitioners, the territories and communities in which the group operates and the planet.

In 2020, Ramsay Santé adopted a Raison d'être: 'Improving everyday health by constantly innovating'. We have gone even further by integrating it, with the approval of our shareholders, into the company's articles of association, thus demonstrating our conviction and determination to bring all governance actions into line with the fundamental vocation of our group. We want to go even further with a commitment approach that takes into account all of our stakeholders and concrete actions whose impact we will be able to monitor year after year. This social responsibility approach will enable us to respond even more to our raison d'être. By taking care to reduce our impact on the environment, we are contributing, as we know today, to improving health. Just as the development of our employees' commitment has a direct impact on the patients they care for on a daily basis. As for the challenge of our social commitment to preventative health for all, it is obvious.

Pascal Roché, CEO of Ramsay Santé

Three fundamental pillars of the CSR strategy

Ramsay Santé's social responsibility approach is based on 3 pillars:

  • A social pillar that involves taking into account the needs of patients, practitioners and staff.
  • A societal pillar which concerns the prevention of health and care and the support of the populations and territories where the group operates.
  • An environmental pillar that involves reducing the impact of its activities and supplies to preserve the planet.
To date, the action plan is based on commitments to the group's main stakeholders: patients, employees, private practitioners, the territories and communities in which the group operates, and the planet.The strategy consists of improving the impact vis-à-vis each of these stakeholders through dedicated actions. This impact is measured by one or more indicators that will be monitored from year to year. The governance of this strategy is ensured by Ramsay Santé's CSR department, which steers and coordinates a network of correspondents in each country, functional department of the group and eventually facilities.

About Ramsay Santé

After the acquisition of the Capio Group in 2018, Ramsay Santé has become the leading European provider of comprehensive healthcare services. The group now has 36,000 employees and works with nearly 8,600 private practitioners.

Present in 5 countries, France, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Italy, the group treats more than 7 million patients per year in its 350 facilities.

In hospitalization, Ramsay Santé offers almost all medical and surgical treatments in three business lines: Medicine-Surgery-Obstetrics (MCO), Follow-up and Rehabilitation Care (SSR) and Mental Health. Wherever it is present, the group participates in public health service missions and in the health network of the country, as in Sweden where the group has more than a hundred local health centres.

The quality and safety of care is the group's priority in all the countries where it operates. This is why the group is today one of the references in modern medicine, especially in ambulatory surgery and enhanced recovery after surgery (ARS).

The group also invests more than €200 million every year in its establishments, whether in new surgical and imaging technologies, or in the construction and modernisation of establishments. It also innovates at the service of patients with new digital tools and by developing its organisations to improve the efficiency of care.
