About Private Hospital Obach

The provision of better health care in a personal atmosphere

If you are looking for the best hospitals of the world, give Swiss hospitals a go. Swiss hospitals offer the most advanced equipment, high-quality service, care, as well as perfect organization, which are also cornerstones of our private hospital operating for over 85 years. This helps us lay a foundation for success treatment and a pleasant stay in the clinic for our patients. Swiss hospitals are continuously evolving, always improving medical technology in order to offer customers the best medical care.

Medical services at Privatklinik Obach are provided by a large number of specialists using the latest equipment.

Thanks to the free practice of doctors having contracts with the hospital, Privatklinik Obach can offer patients a very wide range of medical services. We cover all the important areas of surgery. We also deal with some special areas of therapeutic medicine. However, in rare cases, when there is a need for a major surgery, we offer the patient to apply to specialized centers. Founded in 1922, Privatklinik Obach is the only private hospital (legal form: a partnership) in the region of Solothurn. As we are commercially operated without government subsidies, we provide our services efficiently and at an affordable price.

Our profits are reinvested in order to ensure that technical infrastructure of the hospital always remains up-to-date. However, our motto "Stay Up-To-Date" medically does not mean that we offer expensive and exclusive "high-tech" medicine. We use high-tech means only in those cases where they are really necessary for the effective treatment of the patient.

At Privatklinik Obach, we treat patients with all classes of insurance. Thus, we make a significant contribution to the regional health care.

The system of free practicing doctors having contracts with the hospital allows patients to freely choose a doctor they trust.

We know that care and quality service are very important when you are not well. We promote continuing training and professional development of our employees, as our goal is the best health care in a friendly family atmosphere.
