To ensure you remain in the best of health and to enhance your well-being, we actively promote prevention at the Hirslanden Private Hospital Group. As a leading private healthcare provider in Switzerland, we use different preventive check-ups to identify potential risks. The choice of method depends on a variety of factors and is determined on an individual basis in consultation with yourself. We are happy to advise you.
Your personal health assessment begins with a detailed interview with a general internal medicine specialist about your personal health status. Your interviewer, a leading doctor, will ask you, for example, about previous illnesses and risk factors. These include high levels of smoking and drinking and constant stress as well as a family history of illness. To obtain as full a picture about you as possible, we advise you to be quite open about any health fears you may have.
In any event, the individual health assessment will include the following:
As soon as the results are available, the doctor will discuss your medical history with you with reference to the details you provided in the initial consultation (anamnesis) and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. You will of course also receive the medical report. If the health assessment indicates that further investigation is advisable, a further visit to the hospital will be proposed.
An organ-specific preventive check-up is recommended in case there is a family history of a particular significant disease. This preventive check-up will be conducted by a medical specialist with the Hirslanden Private Hospital Group at one of our centres.
This form of preventive check-up begins with an interview with a specialist in the appropriate medical field in which you discuss both your personal health status and that of your family. This is followed by the organ-specific investigation (see below for the possible investigations involved).
The specialist discusses the results of the investigation with you as soon as they become available. You will then receive the detailed medical report.
