Chenot Palace Weggis names two new medical directors

Chenot Palace Weggis appoints Dr Ursula Levine and Dr Jörg Hummen. They will be working closely with Chenot’s chief scientific and operating officer, Dr George Gaitanos. Their main responsibilities will include overseeing internal and external operations at Chenot Palace Weggis’ medical spa.

“As a society, we have entered a new era with increased focus on the science of ageing. I am delighted that Dr Levine and Dr Hummen are joining us in our pioneering work to drive forward the delivery of care at the Chenot Palace Weggis.” Dr George Gaitanos Chief scientific and operating officer, Chenot Group

“With their support, I will now be able to devote more of my time to lead our research and development activities, continually exploring and applying the science behind the Chenot Method,” said Gaitanos. “They have both extensive experience and an inspirational approach to leading people and working with guests on their personal journeys.”

New recruits Levine and Hummen will support Gaitanos in evolving the Chenot Method across the group. Collectively, they bring more than 45 years of holistic diagnostic and treatment experience to their roles.

Chenot’s Health Wellness Method is formed upon the belief that conventional medicine and hospital diagnostics only see part of the picture. Chenot combines Chinese medicine with the latest diagnostics, treatments and technologies to form a holistic view of the whole body as a system.

Built on the transformative method developed by founder, Henri Chenot, in the 1970s, Chenot has retreats in Switzerland, Azerbaijan, Montenegro and Morocco. Chenot was one of the first to talk about ‘successful ageing’, believing the answer to a long and healthy life lies in the correct combination of genetics, lifestyle and environment.

Opened in 2020, the 5,000sqm spa at Chenot Palace Weggis is an integrated medical retreat. It offers a range of advanced medical screenings and bespoke treatments. Facilities include a world class metabolic and sports laboratory, a whole body cryochamber at -110C, an altitude chamber, and a 21m indoor swimming pool.
