We have been providing medical treatments for 25 years through pleasurable experiences that change people’s lives, making them healthier so they can live longer and enjoy life much more.
We invite you to take a look at our history…
he mystique and philosophy of La Posada del Qenti began to take shape 20 years ago, and from it the different health programs we offer today were designed. There were four important health professionals who strongly inspired those who today are part of La Posada del Qenti Medical Center.
Thanks to their contributions, values and teachings, today our health treatments are the most effective in our country. We are referring to Dr. René Favaloro, Dr. Jorge Barguinsky, Dr. Elena Victoria Cané and Prof. Jorge Brisco.
Dr. Jorge Braguinsky, an eminent medical nutritionist, organized several congresses and nutrition courses at the Posada del Qenti and chose it for many of his breaks. His main legacy was the concept that “the quality of calories is much more important than their quantity”.
Professor Jorge Brisco, former mister mundo and founder of an important gym in Buenos Aires, has been a fundamental piece in the formation of the physical education area and advised on equipment and technological infrastructure.
Dr. Elena Victoria Cané, a prestigious psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, designed together with the medical team the different health programs, always emphasizing the importance that each treatment should be totally personalized and always taking into account the emotional and psychological aspect of the person.
This shows the importance of a great medical team that not only works interdisciplinary but multidisciplinary so that the health plans are efficient, reliable and with lasting results. This team today is led by Dr. Christian Leiva, a clinician specialized in wellness health programs, biological rejuvenation and programs for the third and fourth age.

In this way, the immune system and metabolic function can be balanced and revitalized, also through the acquisition of good lifestyle habits, thus becoming a sort of “school of healthy living”.
