Heart and Brain

Our Innovation Focus on Acute Medicine, Heart & Brain is about further improving the care of patients with acute life-threatening diseases such as acute myocardial infarction and acute stroke. 

In recent years, the University Hospital Basel has moved into the forefront in this field in Switzerland and throughout Europe as a result of its interdisciplinary clinical and scientific innovation. Now, our aim is to consistently drive this progress for the benefit of our patients. 

When it comes to patients who, for example, come to our emergency room with acute chest pain, we want to find out even quicker whether their chest pain is caused by an acute, life-threatening disease such as a heart attack or something more harmless. The sooner we have identified the cause, the faster we can start targeted treatment. In recent years, we have established ways of making this process much safer and faster than in the past and more expedient than in other hospitals.
