Any personal data that may result from your consultation of the website is confidential. However, any request or complaint made via the website will be forwarded to the relevant department of the hospital for appropriate action.

The Valais Hospital uses cookies to track the use of its website. It also makes use of Google Analytics, which is a service offered by Google Inc. With the help of cookies, Google Analytics records and analyses data on the use of the website by internet users (including IP addresses). This data is transmitted to and stored by Google Inc. on servers in the USA. This data is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports and statistics on the use of the website by visitors and to improve the website.

Any reproduction is subject to the prior written consent of the holder of the rights.


In order to ensure the proper performance of its tasks and to guarantee the safety of people and property on its sites, the Valais Hospital is equipped with a video monitoring system, without sound recording.

Video monitoring is a measure that infringes fundamental rights, such as respect for privacy and personal freedom. The use of video monitoring must therefore be strictly regulated and respect several principles in order to minimise the infringement of the aforementioned rights while achieving the aims pursued.

In order to achieve the desired goals while respecting the principle of proportionality, only the most sensitive places likely to represent a danger are equipped with video surveillance cameras. 

These cameras record continuously, in principle without live transmission of the images. However, live images can be consulted, particularly at night when a person in charge of security is present on a site and when a specific interest requires it for certain particularly sensitive areas.
