Paris, France, January 13, 2020 - We are thrilled to announce that the American Hospital of Paris has joined our alliance, bringing excellence in medical care, patient experience and international expertise to our partners.

American Hospital of Paris has carved a niche as an international point of reference for over 100 nationalities, who account for 40% of its patients. Their extensive, multi-disciplinary facility, is the only non-governmental hospital in Paris providing emergency care within a far-reaching range of services including the full range of imaging, and advanced robotic surgery.

“American Hospital of Paris delivers a valuable dimension to our partners' requirements for international know-how, enhanced patient experience, and clinical quality,” stated Louise Heywood, General Manager of the International Assistance Group. She added: “Our alliance is set-up to deliver a best-in-class response to expatriates, corporate travellers in addition to a large leisure market and this appointment demonstrates that depth.”

The American Hospital of Paris combines best practice from two excellent healthcare systems, being certified under the French healthcare system, Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS) which oversees quality and care for hospitals in France, and within the US’s national Joint Commission framework.  Established in 1906, the hospital steered its course as a critical international facility throughout both World Wars, obtaining the US’s Joint Commission accreditation in 1954.
