The privately run, highly specialised St. Claraspital plays an indispensable role in healthcare provision in Basel and north-western Switzerland. The acute care hospital offers outstanding treatment and comprehensive medical expertise. The care provided is equivalent to the standard of a private hospital.
The hospital runs two centres, the Abdominal Centre and the Tumour Centre. The medical services focus on the following specialist areas:
- Pneumology/thoracic surgery
- General internal medicine/endocrinology
- Gynaecology/gynaecological oncology
- Intensive care medicine
The St. Claraspital is also a reference hospital for obesity (adiposity). In addition, it provides extended basic care, with 24-hour emergency service and various outpatient clinics.
Clinical research is also important at the hospital, where it is carried out on patients or test persons directly. Since the day it was founded, the St. Claraspital has seen itself as a learning organisation. It is a University Teaching and Research Hospital recognised as a training centre by the SIWF, the Swiss institute for postgraduate medical education. The research and clinical documentation department functions as a university teaching hospital as part of the Faculty of Medicine in Basel and is tasked with providing the optimum infrastructure for the St. Claraspital’s researchers.
Patients are in the best possible hands in St. Claraspital, where they receive high-quality and holistic medical services and care. They also benefit from professional, personal treatment tailored to their individual needs in a culture of open communication. The staff make St. Claraspital what it is through their great dedication, the respect with which they treat patients and their remarkable commitment to providing the highest quality in all areas.
