Our clinics, centers and institutes are known at an international level for their achievements in medicine, nursing, research and education. The University Hospital Zurich (UHZ) utilizes highly specialized medicine to successfully treat even the most complex diseases. Our primary objective is to provide the best therapy with the best possible quality of care for every patient.

Quality with a system

The UHZ has established a comprehensive quality management program to support optimum treatment. The hospital's philosophy is to carefully and efficiently combine expertise, work processes and technology, thereby ensuring that we minimize risks and achieve even better patient outcomes.

Quality reports

Starting in 2008, the University Hospital Zurich has published a standardized annual report to transparently communicate the quality of services provided. The UHZ has established a high level of quality and safety awareness through the careful recording of key performance indicators and targeted interventions. The priority quality targets are efficiency, effectiveness, safety and focus on the patient. The quality report was developed at the University Hospital and is based on the requirements of the H+qualité label.
