Health

Medical instrument

The Swiss health system is one of the most efficient in the world. It is based on high quality services provided by well trained personnel, reputed hospitals and state-of-the-art institutions. An extensive network of public hospitals and private clinics guarantees quality treatment for all. Switzerland spends about 11% of its GDP on its health system.

Taking out health insurance is obligatory and thus guarantees all basic treatment for adults and children. Insurance premiums vary according to the health insurance company, one’s domicile, age and gender. Finally, all employees working in Switzerland are automatically insured by their employer against accidents.

The Jura hospital provides additional treatment on four sites, whether for outpatients or hospital stays.

In the region of the Franches-Montagnes, the Noirmont Clinic – a private establishment – provides specialised services in cardio-vascular rehabilitation.
