Clinique Bon Pasteur: When modernity blends perfectly with a welcoming family atmosphere

Keeping the philosophy of the Sisters of the Bon et Perpetuel Secours who managed the Clinique Bon Pasteur during the last century, while bringing a touch of modernity, is the challenge that Dr. François Tadebois, director of the clinic, has accepted to take up. Thus, in his eyes, the establishment remains a family clinic, even if the infrastructure has seen significant improvements over the years, and even if there is still a long way to go…

Many might not know it, but the Clinique Bon Pasteur is the oldest private clinic in the country! Founded in 1932, it belonged to the congregation of the Bon et Perpetuel Secours. A beautiful picture of the Sisters smiling in front of the original building is hanging at the reception of the clinic today, as a reminder of these memories from the last century. The diocese took over until the clinic was sold in 1997.

It is said that the older the violin, the sweeter the music! Then, the rich history of the Clinique Bon Pasteur is the foundation that has inspired the philosophy dictating the clinic’s dynamics today. As Dr. Tadebois, director of the Clinique Bon Pasteur explains, the very philosophy of the clinic’s services today is imbued with the vision that the Sisters of the Bon et Perpetuel Secours developed back then.

“We bought the clinic from the diocese in 1997. Our goal since then, has been to perpetuate, through our services, the values developed since the clinic’s establishment: being a small family clinic, where people are comfortable and where a relationship of trust is established between the care provider and the patient”. These values remain, even if the new leadership of the clinic has gradually included a modern twist to it.

Thus, since 1997, a gradual enhancement has been seen: the working conditions of the staff have been improved, as well as the infrastructures and the medical services. For example, ophthalmic services are of a very good standard, as well as maternity services, or abdominal surgery. The operating theatre has also been significantly enhanced and is a center of excellence for cataract treatments, orthopedic surgery and other treatments. Radiology services have also been developed.

And the clinic’s progress will not stop there, because Dr. Tadebois has got loads of future projects: “We want to add services, review the consultations functioning, and further improve the operating theatre, in view of being equipped in terms of high medical technology”.
However, despite this vision regarding the development of the clinic, Dr. Tadebois remains very down to earth. The clinic keeps its hospitality and family atmosphere, and will always do. They thus do not have any plans of becoming an ultra-sophisticated structure where this basic philosophy will gradually vanish. “We are not here to rip off our patients, but to offer quality services, while preserving the family atmosphere and hospitality, that is felt as soon as someone walks through the door of the clinic’s reception».

And as a matter of fact, on this black and white picture at the reception, the Sisters witness this warm welcome every day, as a testimony that their philosophy has survived the test of time. Almost a century later, patients are still welcome with this sweet hospitality, enhanced by a high level of service. Today, they are thus always confident that their health are in good hands at Clinique Bon Pasteur.
