What is the level of medical care in Switzerland?
Home > FAQ > Health > Swiss medical care

Switzerland has the highest level of medical care in the world. Since the 19th century, people from all over the world come to get medical attention in Switzerland. This includes famous people such as King Fahd or Boris Yeltsin. But anybody living in Switzerland can get access to the very best care available. With the compulsory private medical insurance system, you can choose your doctor yourself. Swiss public hospitals are excellent, as could attest the African dictator Mobutu Sese Seko who chose to be treated for his prostrate cancer in the cantonal hospital in Lausanne.
