Florence Nightingale

Florence Nightingale is a famous nurse in Anglo-Saxon culture. She revolutionized medical care. She was a remarkable example of innovation, compassion, dedication to patient care and conscientious, representing a caring hospital administration.

In 2016 Groupe SINOUÉ  decided to give its name to a range of exceptional establishments. This is as much to honour the memory one of the great Women in Medicine, as to be inspired by it.
The goal of Groupe SINOUÉ is to make the Clinique du Château Nightingale Hospitals Paris and Nightingale Hospitals London international referred mental health-care facilities offering new care and treatments that meet the expectations of patients of all categories as closely as possible.


The history of this beautiful place in Garches in the Hauts-de-Seine with a landscaped park of five hectares, beautifully planted, begins in the mid-nineteenth century with the family of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry who built, not far from the Château de Saint-Cloud, this residence intended for vacationing and hunting with hounds.
Its history continues in the 1930s, with Her Highness the Princess of Greece Marie Bonaparte. As a pioneer in psychoanalysis, she became a pupil of Freud and encouraged the reconversion of this little castle into a psychiatric clinic. The environment makes it a unique place conducive to care, under the leadership of doctors Jean-Jacques Rondepierre and Olivier Garand. The latter ran the establishment for more than forty years, taking its reputation across borders.
Anxious to continue this tradition and offer its patients the best quality of care in an exceptional setting, the new management, led by a dynamic team, has since 1998 taken steps to continuously improve the quality of services, to best meet the expectations of its patients.
At the end of the 1990s, doctor Philippe CLÉRY-MELIN, treasurer-archivist of the Medico-Psychological Society (SMP) for almost twenty years, took over the management of this establishment and surrounded himself with a new medical team. He soon entrusted the management to doctor Henry CUCHE, a figure of liberal Parisian psychiatry. On March 1, 2010, Dr Marc MASSON joined the medical team and this institution.
This quality environment contributes to the recovery and is complemented by a medical team made up of specialists from the best university hospital services.
