Waid replaces Triemli as a Zurich problem the hospital

Three men currently dominate the hospital policy of the city of Zurich, you have informed yesterday about the offer strategy for Waid and Triemli and on their economic development: Councilman, Andreas Hauri (GLP), Claudia Nielsen's successor as head of the health Department, André Zemp, since September Chairman of the new Hospital, for both houses, and Andreas Zollinger, medical Director. In your use of language, there are not now two city hospitals, but only one, the " city hospital Waid and Triemli". Legally, however, there are still two service departments of the city, each with its own account, and also of the Canton given its power contracts to the individual firms.

Zemp was able to come up with a good message, he had not expected himself. As a business consultant, took over in October 2017, the leadership in the Triemli, he sat the goal of making the hospital as quickly as possible, financially independent. "The fact that this is already reached, has surprised me." Instead of the budgeted deficit of 18.6 million Swiss francs in 2018 resulted in a profit of 1.4 million. In 2017, the Triemli had a deficit of 32 million. The financial difficulties of the city hospitals caused a political turmoil, in consequence of SP-councillor Nielsen stepped back.

10 million less in interest

Zemp stopped expensive renovation plans, put on the staff of the screw, and committed to attending doctors by the dozen, to the oversized new Triemli bed house to its full capacity. And he reached that the city Council granted its hospitals, a reduction in Interest rates on an industry-standard level; that the account of the Triemli relieved to 8.5 million, those of the woods around 2 million.

The forest the castle in 2018, as budgeted with a deficit of 14.4 million. In the meantime, it was expected that an even bigger Minus, because the number of stationary patients significantly decreased – a result of new legislation in the Canton of, certain procedures only on an outpatient basis. In the last few months, the forest was one of but, again, more in-patient cases. The Triemli is affected by the default; it is to put in the inpatient area all over the year by 0.6 percent.


another economic Problem of the woad to its high staff ratio of 76 percent. This could not be reduced, despite a reduction of 45 jobs so far. According to Zemp the industry average at 63.2 percent. He aims for the woods 65 percent, for which 70 positions need to be eliminated. Where exactly is the reduction in success was not yet determined. Both Zemp, like Hauri and Zollinger are convinced, however, that he is without redundancies as possible through natural fluctuation, restrictive filling of Vacancies and the city's internal dislocations.

the forest had need to fear for supply

Who, the waid city would be undermined, yesterday was reassured. "Both hospitals are for Zurich supply relevant," said Hauri and substantiated with Figures: The Triemli covers 32 percent of the emergencies in the city, the woods 21 percent. As the Triemli, the forest has to offer, therefore, continue to be a broad basic service, for which it needs a surgery, and Internal medicine.

In addition to profile both hospitals in certain areas. The Triemli focused on specialised and highly specialised treatments, for example in the Tumor, or cardiac medicine, abdominal surgery, or ophthalmology. The woods, however, should be to the country's leading center for geriatric medicine. For some specialist to strengthen areas, such as the Geronto-traumatology, orthopedics and rheumatology. In addition, it is hoped that with the hospital list in 2022, a contract for acute-care geriatric Rehabilitation.

but There are also areas in which the forest is restricted. The medical Director Andreas Zollinger-mentioned tumor surgery, surgery of the rectum, and in Overweight. The thyroid surgery is to go to Triemli. In return, the Triemli chic geriatric cases into the woods.

Zemp wants to concentrate also offers the basic service. Conceivable is, for example, to make all hernia operations in the woods and something else only in Triemli. The Doctors then follow their patients.

the city Council Hauri is confident to make the hospitals with all of these measures, as fit that you can claim at the forthcoming award of the power contracts by the Canton of their Position. Satisfied Hauri, however, is not: "the Problem of the cost-effectiveness is not yet solved." The Triemli still suffers from the high levels of debt as a result of the new bed house. Could help a copyist by the city. The city Council is currently discussing various options.
