Strategic partnerships in acute and rehabilitation care

Good healthcare today works together. As a shaper in the Joint Healthcare Region, the University Hospital Basel is expanding its internal and external networks in order to advance the healthcare system and offer the population even better care.

Thanks to the combination of Bethesda Hospital and University Hospital Basel, we can offer our patients university medical treatment in the personal atmosphere of a private hospital - in the middle of the city.

Supra-regional care: Hôpital du Jura, Kantonsspital Aarau, Solothurner Spitäler

We think outside the region when it comes to the care of patients with complex illnesses and injuries. The Hôpital du Jura and the university hospital work together to ensure that university research findings are also brought quickly to the bedside of patients in the Jura, for example in cardiology or spinal surgery. The University Hospital Basel operates medical centers with supra-regional partners, for example with the Cantonal Hospital Aarau, and maintains a close professional exchange, for example in internal medicine with the Solothurn hospitals.
