Altru opens Truyu

Driving down DeMers Avenue the other day, I was surprised to see a big new sign on one of Altru's clinic buildings. The former "Altru Clinic - DeMers" is now called the "Truyu Aesthetic Center." Check out Altru's press release.

Truyu brings Altru's aesthetic departments - plastic and cosmetic surgery, dermatology, laser services, and vein therapy - under one roof. According to Altru, Truyu will not have a traditional clinical feel. Instead, they're billing it as a "spa-like" atmosphere.

By the way, speaking of Altru, has anybody heard anything about those five-year, $100 million dollar expansion and renovation plans lately? They made the big announcement a year ago, but it has been very quiet since...

I saw that a few days ago and was wondering what it was. As for Altru Hospital and their 100 million dollar expansion, since they first mentioned it, I haven't heard a thing. First thought that popped into my head was the Aurora and if a new hospital going up (if they build) would put Altru's planned expansion on hold, but then thought nahhh, you wouldn't think so.

Can I just say that the name truyu has to be one of the lamest names for a business I've heard of? For that matter the same goes for the name Altru. What is with the trend lately that everything has to be trend setting and have a buzz word for a name?

Altru is just a shortened version of Altruistic. Quite a nice name for a hospital considering they are in the business of caring for people.

truyu is not as good as i was hoping. A freind of mine had a chemical peel done and the fan they used to cool her face was dusty and broken. HOW PROFESSIONAL. I CALLED ABOUT DERMAPLANING ITS ON THEIR WEBSITE AND HAD TO TALK TO THREE DIFFERENT POEPLE ABOUT IT AND THEY DID NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT. MAKES YOU WANNA GO HMMM? WHY WOULD I WANT TO RISK IT WITH THEM WHEN THERE IS UNPROFEESIOALISM GOING ON. THE JUAVDERM IS WAY OVER PRICED. IT SHOULD BE RIGHT AROUND 381 AND THEY CHARGE 550 TO 600 DOLLARS PER SYERINGE. THEY SOUNDED LIKE THEY WERE TO BUSY AND BASICALLY TREATED ME LIKE A NUT. I JUST WANTED A COUNSULT FOR IT. YOU HAVE DERMAPLANING OKAY!!!!!!!!!!
