What’s the difference between being hospitalised on a general ward, a semi-private ward and a private ward?
In Switzerland, the difference lies in the accommodation and the doctors who will take care of you.
On a general ward, you will stay in a room with several beds (between two and eight), depending on availability. You cannot choose your medical practitioners (surgeon, obstetrician, etc.). In the case of public hospitals, the CHIS reimburses 100% of the costs associated with a stay on a general ward.
