“From our first meeting with the team at La Cité Médicale, we were impressed by the scope and quality of the services provided to their patients. Through the acquisition of this significant medical group, we aim to enhance our capacity to serve the patients of these reputable and well-established clinics” says Laurent Amram, President and Founder of ELNA Medical Group.
