Counselling services

Social counselling
In some situations, ensuring the smooth discharge of patients can be a very complex process as it demands special expertise to facilitate and precisely coordinate the many interfaces.

  • Organising rehabilitation treatment (only possible if prescribed by a doctor), treatment at a spa, acute care or transitional care
  • Enquiring about confirmation of coverage for rehabilitation treatment or for a contribution to treatment at a spa
  • Searching for a retirement or nursing home

Social Services can be reached at the hospital from Monday to Friday, from 8.00 am to 12.00 pm and from 1.00 pm to 4.30 pm or by e-mail at sozialdienst.beau-site@hirslanden.ch.
