Best specialist clinic in Switzerland 2024

The USZ Obstetrics Clinic was evaluated for the first time this year by the “Handelszeitung” in collaboration with the German market research company Statista and immediately took the top spot at this premiere – well ahead of the competition. The fact that medical experts gave very good ratings in the online survey underlines the clinic’s high reputation throughout Switzerland. The clinic’s new premises are also making an impact: the equipment in the birthing rooms scores highly as a “standout treatment”.
