Please find below some useful information to help prepare for your admission and stay in the hospital. For any further information regarding your admission, please call +41 27 604 33 33.

Your admission is carried out in agreement with your referring doctor. Generally, admissions for patients staying overnight take place in the afternoon, and outpatient admissions start in the morning from 07:00. Please come to the hospital reception located on the ground floor at the time specified by your doctor.
Following your registration and various formalities, you will be taken on by the healthcare staff, who will take you to your room. If you are expected to have fasted before your admission, you must not drink, eat or smoke for the 6 hours preceding your arrival at the hospital.

If you are admitted via Accident & Emergency, formalities will be kept to a minimum; you or someone you know will however have to present the requisite documents to the reception centre as soon as possible.
