Facts & figures on hospitals

Want to search for a hospital by canton, specialisation or name? Looking for particular hospital services? It’s all here on these pages. The FOPH is legally obliged to publish operating figures and medical quality indicators from Swiss hospitals. Here you can read about structures, staff and finances, and performance with case figures, mortality and length of stay in the case of illness or operations.
