Investing in Immortality: The Echelon Health Check
As we inch towards a post-Covid age (albeit with definite setbacks) and we all work to re-calibrate and reassess where we are – attention to health has never been more front of mind.
Preventative healthcare is certainly on the rise, and after a year of virtual medical appointments, many are seeking in depth information about their state of their wellbeing. Taking control of one’s health is something in demand. And within the luxury sector in particular, comprehensive health checks are increasingly in demand.
Widely considered to be the most advanced health check, Echelon Health is home to the most advanced medical screening equipment and a renowned team of experts; it delivers a comprehensive health assessment, the imaging is so accurate that you wouldn’t need another assessment for four years. Proactive, predictive and utterly personalised, their medical assessments can detect up to 92% of diseases in men. That number is 96% for women.
The tech is impressive. Echelon’s CT & MRI technology is among the most advanced in the world, and the detailed microscopic detection of early signs of cancers and tumours is awe-inspiring. And although there are naturally others out there doing this, what sets them apart is that they use more equipment – including the latest in CT, 3TMRI and ultrasound scanners, as well as detailed blood test which allow for microscopic systemic detail which flags early signs of cancers and tumours.
New for this summer, Echelon Optimum has partnered with London’s luxury 5-star Mandarin Oriental Hotel in London. Their Echelon Optimumincludes a comprehensive, full body medical scan, a wide-ranging set of diagnostic tests, a driver to and from your home, and a 2-night, restful stay at one of the city’s most iconic hotels. Their new Assessment covers all of the health assessments and along with a two-night stay as a guest in the iconic hotel before being chauffeured to Harley Street for a full day of back-to-back assessments & tests, where they will, after a 12-hour fasting, enjoy lunch and will be under the care and supervision of their personal client liaison manager.
When their day at Echelon Health is over, clients will be taken back to the hotel, where they can relax in their luxurious suite and they have vouchers to spend at the Mandarin Oriental which can be used on spa or in room dining or whatever they want as part of the service. Echelon Optimum clients can also enjoy a spa treatment of their choice from the hotel’s extensive menu of relaxing treatments. In the morning, the client will be chauffeured back to their home and within two weeks, Echelon Health Director Dr Paul Jenkins will follow up personally with a detailed health analysis and healthcare suggestions for the future. If the client requires treatment, Dr Jenkins will refer the client to either his trusted network of Harley Street specialists, or their own specialist practitioners.
Practicing to the highest and most thorough clinical standards, all state-of-the-art images from the scans are analysed by up to seven hand-selected for their brilliance, radiologists, who have 20+ years’ experience in their field. Personal health care information is often siloed, but what Echelon offers is highly specific, advanced, integrated, and harmonised with curated data.
Costing £14,000 per person or £24,000 for two, the health check is not inexpensive, but ultimately it promises information and care that is definitely priceless.
