The Hirslanden Private Hospital Group in the most important stages:
Hirslanden is closely involved in combating the pandemic in each canton where Hirslanden has a hospital. Firstly, as COVID-A hospitals, which themselves provide COVID-19 patients with intensive care and treatment, such as Klinik Hirslanden in Zurich. Secondly, by cooperating with COVID-19 hospitals, to which Hirslanden's clinics offer help with staffing, materials and infrastructure.

Under this cooperation, COVID-19 patients who do not require intensive care are treated at Spitalzentrum Biel. In return, Klinik Linde offers surgeons at the Spitalzentrum infrastructure facilities so they can undertake urgent surgeries. A successful example of regional coordination benefiting patients.
