Each project is a unique experience borne out of a confluence of ideas and shared vision. The creation of solutions that are based on the supremacy of the doctor-patient relationship and excellence – which is the essential driver of economic efficiency – is the foundation of our concept and history.
Concerned by public health issues, the founders developed a pilot project in a district where there was very acute need but nobody had dared to imagine a medical group. The Lignon Medical Centre (CML), which is now independent of Magellan, was inaugurated in 2008.
Another challenge was the takeover of the Swica Health Centre, which became the Rue de Lausanne Medical Centre (CMRL) in 2011. This new facility which had 8 doctors depended on the expertise of professionals from Magellan to incorporate the group.
The project of creating another centre that is even bigger came from a study that was conducted on health planning. Situated at the confluence of Servette, Petit-Saconnex, Châtelaine, des Grottes and Saint-Jean, the Servette Medical Centre (CMSE) entered into service in 2011 and currently has more than 20 doctors.
After its consolidation in Geneva, it was time for this expertise to be extended into the Canton of Vaud. Thus, the Renens Medical Centre (CMRE) was inaugurated in 2011 with 10 doctors in a district that is near the bus station and very accessible to the local population.

Doctors in Gland contacted Magellan with the goal of joining forces with us and building a medical centre in the region. This new Gland Medical Centre (CMGL) commenced partial operations in 2012 with the takeover of individual practices. In August 2014, the integration was consolidated in the new medical centre located in the Eikenøtt ecological district.

Magellan is also working to expand the services offered by the medical Centres of the Group by creating specialist centres. The Varembé Psychotherapy Centre (CPVA) was inaugurated in 2012 close to CMSE, on rue de Vermont and has about ten psychologists and psychiatrists.
In late 2013, we inaugurated another big medical centre in the building hosting the Planète Charmilles shopping centre in Geneva. The Charmilles Medical Centre (CMCH) team includes about 30 health professionals (doctors and paramedics), who are already involved in our mission that is based on trust and proximity.
In order to broaden the services to the patients, the Centre Imagerie Servette is open and offers a complete unit of diagnostic and interventional radiology. The center provides examinations for the Magellan partners as well as external prescribers..
The Grand-Saconnex Medical Centre (CMGS) is located on rue Sonnex. The centre, which focuses on family medicine practice in Pommier district, has 10 practices and a standard radiology department.The center can accommodate not only patients in the area but also many patients from international organizations.
In this area not yet benefiting from a radiology center, the Centre Imagerie Versoix starts operating by offering a complet panel of diagnostic and interventional radiology, The center is situated at the heart of Versoix, just beside the train station. Ressources are shared with the Centre Imagerie Servette in order to provide the skills of the 6 radiologists on both sites.
Recognized general practitioners of the Riviera have trusted Magellan and have chosen to regroup in a new center in the heart of Vevey. Young doctors who recently completed their Swiss training as well as an oncologist, dermatologists and surgeons then took advantage of this group dynamism to give life to this new place of local care.
