Visp Hospital Accident & Emergency

Emergency medicine is the department of medicine that deals with the care and treatment of medical emergencies. In technical terms, it covers the entire rescue chain and is an interdisciplinary medical field in which all the specialized departments in hospitals are brought together.

The emergency department is open 24 hours a day for mild and acute cases (children, adolescents and adults).

Accident & Emergency

General Practitioner Emergency Centre(HANOW)

The Haut-Vallais General Practitioner Emergency Centre (HANOW) is located in the Viège [Visp] hospital. Unlike the Viège hospital emergency department, where only doctors at the Haut-Valais Hospital work, this emergency service is run by general practitioners in the region.

Each year, over 5,000 patients are treated there. This is where ‘general practitioner emergencies’ are managed, in other words patients who could be treated in a family doctor/GP practice. The Haut-Vallais General Practitioner Emergency Centre (HANOW) and the hospital emergency department are directly linked. The collaboration between these departments is therefore a permanent one.

The Haut-Vallais General Practitioner Emergency Centre (HANOW) is open from Monday to Friday 5.30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and weekends and public holidays from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

No appointment is necessary, and patients are seen in order of arrival. Only urgent examinations and treatments are carried out. Subsequent interventions and treatment follow-ups are delegated to the family doctor.
