The FOPH recommends that all persons with COVID-19 symptoms undergo a test. The Coronavirus Test Centre at Klinik Hirslanden would like to offer you the best possible care and short waiting times. Therefore, we only perform coronavirus swab testing after you have made a prior appointment. The appointment includes a short evaluation and the swab.


Please register below via the online appointment system and select your desired appointment time. You will receive confirmation by email.

  • Currently we need max. 36 hours for the test results. You will only receive a call from us if your test is positive. During this call you will be informed by telephone about the further procedure. After the test you must isolate yourself immediately and remain in quarantine at least until you receive the SMS.
  • You will automatically receive an SMS with the test result after your swab has been evaluated. You should therefore check that your mobile phone number is correct when you are admitted.
  • You will also receive your test result as a printout of the laboratory findings automatically to the e-mail address you have provided. If you have not received anything after 36 hours, please call T +41 44 387 95 95.
