Key data on Swiss hospitals 2008/2009

The fifth edition of the publication «Key data on Swiss hospitals» contains for the first time data for every hospital. The new Article 22a of the Health Insurance Act, which came into force on 1 January 2009, together with Article 31 of the Health Insurance Ordinance, provide now the legal basis for the data collected from 2009 and the publication of the key data 2008/2009 became mandatory. The figures are based on the Hospital Statistics and the Medical Statistics of Hospitals for 2008 and 2009 from the Federal Statistical Office (FSO). They give an overview of the hospitals' structure, patients, capacity, services offered, personnel and financial situation, as well as the average severity of illness of hospitalised acute patients.
