About hospital

Some prefer to solve their health problems and receive healthcare abroad, for example, in Switzerland. Since 2002, Swiss hospital Klinik Birshof belongs to Hirslanden, the first group of private healthcare facilities in Switzerland. The merger of the former private hospitals of the country has given important impetus to the Swiss healthcare system and indicated the further direction to move into the future. Modern healthcare has become so complex that individual initiatives have now become pointless. Anyone who wants to provide medical services at the highest level should be able to work interdisciplinary and use efforts in an optimum way. Hirslanden is managed on private economic principles. The success of this group of private healthcare facilities is based on high motivation, flexibility and transparency, as well as on lifelong education, professional development of staff, and active exchange of experience and skills.
