The fifteenth edition of the publication «Key figures for Swiss hospitals», published by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), contains like the previous version data for each Swiss hospital. The information is based on the 2019 data of the Hospital Statistics and the Medical Statistics of Hospitals collected by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO). They provide an overview of the hospitals structure, patients, benefits, offer/supply, staff and financial situation as well as the illness average severity of acute in-patients. Article 59a of the Health Insurance Act, which came into force on 1st January 2016 (previously article 22a of the Health Insurance Act), together with Article 31 of the Health Insurance Ordinance, provide the legal basis for this publication.
