Zürich is a city where you can expect the best in everything. The most delicious food from the most upscale restaurants. The most beautiful clothes from the most luxurious stores. And the finest treatment from some of the best hospitals in Switzerland. Granted, Swiss healthcare has been renowned all over the world, it's thanks in large part to the country's exceptional healthcare institutions. Here in Zürich, the country's business hub, expect that you will find hospitals and clinics that won't just take care of you and help you recover, but will also make you feel better than ever before!
University Hospital Zurich
Right off the bat, let's start with the University Hospital Zürich. Now, don't dismiss it just because it's a teaching hospital! Although, yes, many of you will get treated by young residents and undergraduate medical students, that doesn't make it any less of a professional institution. On the contrary, the treatment you'll receive here, especially with intensive and extensive surgeries, might just be some of the most advanced as the University Hospital Zürich is also a research facility. They're often at the cusp of the latest in the field of medicine, be they revolutionary treatments, new drugs, and the like.
University Children’s Hospital Zurich
Whether it's pediatrics for the little ones or maternity care for expecting mothers, the University Children’s Hospital Zurich excels in anything that has to do with children. It's not just they have the right equipment, the correct facilities, and the experienced staff, it's also their principle of taking care of the kids' needs. This institution goes a step further and ensures that every young patient that goes through its doors remains comfortable, happy, and hopeful regardless of their health problems. It's through this commendable dedication that the University Children’s Hospital Zurich has become one of the most popular in the city.
Balgrist University Hospital
Here's yet another teaching hospital: Balgrist University Hospital. But what separates it from the others is that it focuses on a specific specialty, orthopedics. Whether it's your limbs and legs, your joints and ligaments, this institution will take care of your body no matter what. And in many ways, this makes it the hospital to go to for tourists especially. More often than not, tourists exploring the city for the first time are more at risk of getting all sorts of injuries since they're unfamiliar with the city at large. When they're in need of proper Swiss healthcare
in that regard, they can rush over here.
More often than not, women are at risk of contracting a variety of health problems throughout their lives. They're even increasingly vulnerable during pregnancy as well. So it makes sense that a hospital in Zürich, Kantonsspital Winterthur, specialized in gynecology and women's healthcare. This isn't to say, however, that other patients aren't welcome here. This isn't a women's only-type institution. However, it's safe to say that the female sex will be given a lot more attention here than the others. Moreover, children will also be given priority here at the hospital's renowned Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine.
The Swiss capital seems to have a good number of healthcare institutions that specialize in women's and children's healthcare. Another one on this list is Klinik Hirslanden. Although this clinic offers a diverse array of health services, their most prominent include maternity care, pediatrics, and geriatrics. The former, maternity care, is one of the most renowned as the clinic offers one of the cleanest and well-equipped maternity wards in the city. They even offer private rooms for women who have just given birth depending on their health insurance plan. Talk about excellent service!
If the latest updates on travel restrictions
in Switzerland are any indication, the country really has been seeing fewer and fewer cases of Covid-19 in the past few months. And you can thank hospitals like Stadtspital Waid in Zürich for that! This institution was one of the quickest to respond to the pandemic, offering up testing facilities and eventually, vaccination wards over the past year and a half. Not to mention they continue specializing in diverse medical fields, ranging from geriatrics and orthopedics to even mental healthcare. It's almost as if there's nothing this hospital can't do!
Schulthess Klinik prides itself as one of 'the leading orthopedic clinics in Europe.' That alone should convince you as to why you should know this place. Whatever may happen to you, whether you're exploring the city as a tourist or you're taking public transport
during rush hour, the moment something happens to your musculoskeletal system, this clinic will tend to it. Although it's one of the smaller institutions on this list, it doesn't lack the latest medical technology, well-experienced staff, and advanced treatments that will help you recover faster and more effectively.
To say that Zürich does not lack anything is not a far-fetched statement. The Swiss city has everything one needs for a comfortable stay. Not the least of which are fine hospitals and clinics that will take care of you the moment something happens!
These excellent health institutions will ensure you remain at your best in Zurich! This way, you can better enjoy your time here, especially in your luxury home
