15 June 2023 – 15 June 2024: one year committed as a purpose-driven company

Clariane Group

15 June 2024 is not just any date for Clariane. This date marks one year since we adopted the status of being a purpose-driven company. It’s a choice that provides structure and meaning, and forms the basis of our strategy.

We have come a long way since 2003, driven by the collective energy of our community, committed to serving the most vulnerable and the elderly. 60,000 employees, who provided support to almost 900,000 patients and residents in either one of our facilities or at home in 2023.

Today and tomorrow, the Clariane community remains committed to a shared mission: “Take care of each person’s humanity in times of vulnerability”.
