Excellence in Healthcare - Swiss Quality
Switzerland has a great tradition in healthcare and hospitality. The humanitarian Red Cross, founded by Henry Dunant in 1863, is one example. Switzerland is also proud of its high reputation internationally for hotel management and hospitality. Fundamentally, it was the combination of excellent hotel and hospital services which led to new standards in care and treatment in the 19th and 20th centuries within the alpine region. Switzerland is one of the oldest democracies in the world and has always been emphasizing values such as neutrality, reliability, and quality.
Located in the heart of Europe, Switzerland has the cultural heritage of a multilingual population, where people have learned from childhood to respectfully and peacefully live in coexistence between various cultures. Switzerland is the top choice for many multi-national companies and international investors because of the country's reputation for political stability, safety, multicultural understanding, qualified labour market, and high quality of life. Switzerland is also proud of being host to various international organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations (UN) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
In the world of industry the words “Made in Switzerland” are associated with precision, innovative capability and cutting edge technology. Switzerland is a leader in the field of medical technology such as orthopaedic and dental implants, the pharmaceutical industry, and the micro technology. As a country with few natural resources, Switzerland provides publicly-funded education at a high standard to foster its brain power. Switzerland offers a broad choice to students at the level of higher or tertiary education.
