Clinic for Internal Medicine

In situations of severe or chronically progressive illness, we are there for you. Our palliative care stands for pain-relieving care and attentive support.

On our specialised palliative care ward at Zollikerberg Hospital, we care for patients with advanced, complex conditions. Our palliative care team consists of specially trained medical and nursing professionals as well as experts in pastoral care, social work, physiotherapy, nutritional counselling and occupational therapy. We work together with you and your relatives to find viable solutions for the current phase of your illness.

Professional and seamless follow-up care for you

After your return home or transition to a long-term care institution, hospice or other facility, we work closely with your family doctor, Spitex and other organisations.

One option for long-term care is available right next to our hospital in our Magnolia residential and nursing home. Like Zollikerberg Hospital, this is part of the Zollikerberg Healthcare Centre. Thanks to the close cooperation and physical proximity, palliative patients can continue to be cared for seamlessly at Magnolia if required.

If you have any questions or require information about your stay on our specialised palliative care ward, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can reach us on the telephone number +41 44 397 20 95.

Your single room on our specialised palliative care ward

Our specialised palliative care unit offers eleven quiet single rooms with a view of the park. We welcome patients of all insurance classes.
