CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) pandemic
Important information for SportClinic patients
Updated 20 April 2020
We at SportClinic Zurich will be fully available for patients seeking information and consultation in all matters concerning musculoskeletal injuries and conditions at adjusted consultation times from 27 April 2020.
According to the Federal Decree of 16 April 2020, providers of personal services may continue to provide services beyond emergency care from Monday, 27 April 2020. Restrictions no longer apply to medical practices as well as physiotherapy and medical massage services. Hospitals will be permitted to conduct elective surgery again from 27 April 2020.
It will be possible to arrange an appointment with our SportClinic physicians and therapists from 27 April 2020. We take patient and employee protection extremely seriously.
The high level of infectiousness of COVID-19 and the potential for asymptomatically infected people to transmit the disease will still force us to adjust our organisational procedures for employee and patient protection after reopening on 27 April 2020.
Please also understand that we also have to keep the number of people in our consulting offices at once to a minimum in order to comply with hygiene and distancing regulations. Changes in the hours that our physicians and therapists are present have also forced us to readjust our consultation times. Some of our locations may also provide extended opening times.
We are spacing out consultation appointments with gaps long enough to avoid contact between patients. Patients and employees are required to wear protective masks in our consulting offices. We provide hand disinfectants for patients.
We greatly appreciate patients keeping to the required distances from one another at our consultation offices.
We still cannot treat COVID-19 patients. Please consult your family doctor if you have symptoms of the disease. We are of course still available for telephone consultation in urgent issues.
We expect to be able to provide surgical treatment at SportClinic Zurich Hirslanden again from 4 May 2020. Zurich Health Directorate and Federal Health Authority (BAG) ordinances will still apply to us. We are working together with Hirslanden on eliminating our backlog of postponed operations as soon as possible. Please contact our front office if this affects you.
Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you again for treatment.
