The Vascular Centre Im Park at Hirslanden Klinik Im Park in Zurich offers the entire range of modern vascular medicine. Our interdisciplinary team of doctors comprised of angiologists, vascular surgeons and radiologists cooperates closely to diagnose and treat illnesses of the arteries, veins and the lymphatic system.

Private hospital on the left bank of the lake

Swiss clinics can offer their patients the highest standard of care, for example, the private hospital Hirslanden provides medical services with respect to the patient and in line with expectations of the most demanding patients.

Contractual hospital

Most often Swiss clinics operate on a contractual basis with doctors and other health care facilities (contractual hospital) and provide specialized and highly qualified health services. Swiss clinics strive to fulfill all the requirements of the Register of Medical Institutions to confirm the high quality of work and capabilities.

Tertiary health care

Swiss clinics offer their patients competent medical professionals with high skills, latest technology, and multi-faceted treatment concepts in the field of cardiac and visceral medicine, at the same time meeting HSM (Health Systems Management) requirements.

In November 24, 2014, the authorities of the canton of Schwyz published the Register of Medical Institutions 2015. Since 2015, Klinik Im Park is again included in this registry of Swiss clinics with a mandate to work in the field of cardiology and cardiac surgery. Executive Board of the Health Department of the Canton of Schwyz inspected the list of services rendered at Klinik Im Park and found that the clinic complies with all applicable requirements to Swiss clinics and can be included into the Register of Medical Institutions. Conditions for obtaining a mandate for work in the field of heart surgery include the availability of infrastructure and the provision of emergency assistance related to heart surgery.

The management and the staff of Klinik Im Park are extremely pleased that the canton of Schwyz has adopted a favorable decision.

On the other hand, the inclusion into the Register of Medical Institutions proves that Klinik Im Park meets all the requirements that are applied to Swiss clinics.
