Our roots and future

Zollikerberg Hospital is based on a deeply rooted history of medicine, nursing and care. The "Neumünster Hospital and Deaconess Institution" opened its doors on Zurich's Hegibachplatz in 1858. In 1931, it was transferred to the Stiftung Diakoniewerk Neumünster. The humanity practised and the innovative strength of these pioneers still inspire us today. In 1933, the "Neumünster Hospital" moved to the municipality of Zollikerberg. In 1998, the foundation merged with the Swiss Nursing School. Today's Zollikerberg Hospital continues to embody the drive to help people.

We are part of the Zollikerberg world of health

Zollikerberg Hospital is part of the Zollikerberg World of Health. The facilities, which are run by the Diakoniewerk Neumünster foundation, accompany people from birth to the end of their lives. Humanity and care are our top priorities and make us a special place where people feel completely at ease. Our roots go back to the establishment of our foundation in 1858. Women's initiative professionalised nursing care and thus played a key role in shaping the healthcare system. The "Swiss School of Nursing with Women's Hospital", which was founded by the first Swiss women doctors, was also committed to the self-determination of women.
