Welcome to the Centre médical Gare de Vevey

Why a medical center at the Vevey train station?

The idea of ​​creating a medical center came to us during the discussions about the challenges posed to the family doctor in the current context.

Our discussions led us to consider the following regional needs:

  • Offer prehospital triage with referral of situations requiring hospitalization towards Rennaz or the CHUV
  • Foster complementarity and interactions with other private and public actors
  • Bring a care option to the city center for emergencies in order to avoid travel to Rennaz
  • Favor the rapid management of simple cases
  • Develop a home medical care solution for the most fragile patients or those who cannot move
  • Train the next generation and serve as an intergenerational link in the delivery of cabinets
  • Allow doctors to dedicate maximum time to their patients

From project to opening

CFF wanted to renovate their premises of the Vevey train station and we were interested in creating a medical center there with an immediate care service. At the end of 2017, we started thinking about renovating the premises, integrating different health players. We wanted to concentrate our efforts on the purpose of the rapid management of patients within the immediate care service as well as consultations of general medicine, pediatrics, and other specialties in which medical offer is lacking in the region ( endocrinology-diabetology, neurology, dermatology).

The renovation work of the medical center started in March 2019. After a year of work, the center opened its doors at the beginning of February 2020. To date, we’re able to offer you a medical center that is open 7 days a week as well as consultations in general medicine, neurosurgery, pediatrics, and nursing services.

We have 8 consultation rooms, 5 treatment rooms, a digital medical radiology installation, sonography (ultrasound), laboratory analysis laboratory.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Centre médical Gare de Vevey.
