Sale of Klinik Belair

Hirslanden decides to sell Klinik Belair in Schauffhausen. This strategic decision is taken because Klinik Belair does not have a direct connection to a Hirslanden central hospital and cannot be allocated to a specific healthcare region. After the sale, the Hirslanden Private Hospital Group comprises 17 hospitals in 10 cantons.
