In December 2022, Ramsay Santé, the European leader in private hospitalisation and primary care, amended its articles of association to become a mission driven company. Having adopted a mission statement: "Improving health through constant innovation" and four social and environmental commitments, the Group is today announcing the creation of a mission committee responsible for ensuring that these commitments are respected.

Introduced by the 2019 PACTE law, the status of mission-driven company has been adopted by Ramsay Santé with the ambition of providing concrete evidence of its positive impact towards patients, employees, partners and the planet, based on four social and environmental objectives

  • Promoting access to healthcare for all;
  • Develop medical innovation to offer the best possible care, in particular through scientific and medical research;
  • Systematise dialogue with stakeholders across all territories;
  • Protecting the planet to improve health, in particular through actions to reduce environmental impact.

Adopting the status of a company with a mission enables us to move beyond our purpose towards a reason to act. I am deeply convinced that there is no impact without proof of impact. This commitment doesn't just represent a change in our articles of association, it reflects a profound transformation of our organisation towards greater responsibility and a measurable positive impact.

Pascal Roché, Chief Executive Officer of Ramsay Santé

A mission committee to monitor our commitments 

Appointed by the Group's Board of Directors, the role of this mission committee, which met for the first time on 3 October 2023, is to assess the relevance and impact of the various actions, but also to discuss them whenever necessary

The mission committee is chaired by Martin Vial, Senior Advisor at Montefiore Investment, former CEO of the Agence des participations de l'État, former CEO of the Europ Assistance Group and former CEO and then Chairman of the La Poste Group. 

As Chairman of the Mission Committee, I want to work with the entire Committee to help Ramsay Santé not only to continue, but also to expand its pioneering role in medical innovation and access to care. This committee not only has an advisory role, but also acts as a watchdog to ensure that the Group's mission is translated into concrete, measurable action.

Martin Vial, Chairman of the Mission Committee

The committee's remit:

Under the responsibility of its Chairman, the Committee will issue an annual report to the Board of Directors, which will be audited by an independent third-party body responsible for verifying that the mission has been properly carried out. 

This committee will meet at least two or three times a year and, through the General Secretary, will request meetings, individual or group discussions and visits to establishments to examine certain subjects in greater depth. 

Composition of the Mission Committee: a collective of varied expertise

The Mission Committee is made up of 11 members with complementary backgrounds (technology, innovation, ethics, ecology, economics, etc.). All are driven by an international vision of their profession. Three of them work for the Group, to bring a hands-on perspective to the discussions. 

Each member of the Mission Committee has skills and expertise in one or more of the Group's mission objectives.
