At the helm of SIS, a family-owned holding company for all of his shareholdings and businesses, Philippe Austruy is a pioneering entrepreneur and business leader in the private health and long-term care industry.
Over the past forty years he has contributed to the present structure of the French health landscape by participating in the founding of private hospital-care groups, more specifically surgical clinics (medicine, surgery and obstetrics).
Philippe Austruy then committed to and reorganised the long-term care sector with the development of private care homes for the elderly and the design of a new format, post-acute care and rehabilitation centres, which have helped to contain hospital health expenditure. Finally, he supplemented the range of services dedicated to addiction by developing a home-care services business.
As a genuine pioneer of new horizons, he is also participating in the opening-up to private players in the childcare sector, thereby ramping up the supply of nursery places accessible to young parents. Based on the establishment of public/private partnerships, the founding and management of Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) establishments offers turnkey solutions to hospitals and their employees as well as to local authorities and their constituents.
Finally, as a wine lover with a passion for the finest terroirs, Philippe Austruy has amassed a superb collection of vineyards that over the years he has rehabilitated with a focus on excellence: The Commanderie de Peyrassol and La Bernarde in Provence, Château Malescasse in the Haut Médoc, Quinta Da Côrte in the Douro Valley in Portugal and Tenuta Casenuove in the heart of Tuscany in Italy.
Born in 1949, Philippe Austruy is a graduate of the Paris Institute of Political Studies and has a doctorate in economics. An acknowledged expert in the health sector, he has authored a number of articles and books and held responsibilities within the Fédération Intersyndicale des Établissements d'Hospitalisation Privés (Private Hospital Care Federation - FIEHP), the private oncology syndicate and other sectoral organisations. He also founded the club of companies listed on the Nouveau Marché equity market which promoted growth companies.
