What quality means to us

The main elements of total quality are defined in the quality policy operated by Claraspital:

"Total quality should be achieved through personal, individualized and professionally competent therapy, nursing and management marked by good coordination and interdisciplinary team work. For this reason impeccable quality is the goal in all aspects of the hospital's work. Total quality comprises all types and dimensions of the quality of services provided by the hospital."

Extract from the policy statement

The top priority of Claraspital is to offer patients high-quality, comprehensive medical and nursing care. This fundamental approach is underpinned by the hospital's mission statement.
