La Tania Medical Centre
In the case of a skiing accident the choice of Doctor and/or Medical Centre rests entirely with the trauma patient. As a "LA TANIA" patient you are entitled to request to be taken to the Medical Centre of La Tania for treatment. Obviously in an emergency situation the immediate care of the patient is the priority and the nearest approprite centre or helicopter is used. Piste Rescue +33 (0)479 08 99 00

Doctor Joncquiert-Latarjet is an experienced climber and mountaineer - the top right is a picture at 7400m on Lhotse, the fourth highest mountain in the World at 8516m and part of the Everest massif.
Looks like our doctor rips on skis too - we hope to get her on a video snow report soon...
