Hospital Advisory Board

The Hospital Advisory Board is the supreme governing body of the University Hospital Zurich and consists of nine members. Its duties are similar to those of a Board of Directors within a corporation. Seven members are elected by the government council and approved by the cantonal council. In addition, one person each is delegated by the University of Zurich and the Health Department of the Canton of Zurich. The Hospital Advisory Board is responsible for the overall direction, supervision and control of the management. Its activities are based on the Law on the University Hospital of Zurich (USZG), the ownership strategy adopted by the Cantonal Council and the performance mandates of the Canton of Zurich.
