Through their personal qualities and professionalism, the nursing team of Leukerbad Clinic does its utmost to provide optimal individualised care. Interprofessional collaboration (doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, sports therapists, masseurs, occupational therapists, clinical psychologist, dietician, nutritionist, hotel and restaurant staff) ensures the attainment of the planned health-care objectives. The team provides the necessary patient care in compliance with the most demanding professional best practices.

Nursing care is provided 24/24. The team, including a high percentage of graduate nurses, has the capacity to create and establish a special relationship with patients and to dedicate constant attention to their needs.

All staff members receive continuous training to enable them to provide the most appropriate care. By accepting student nurses and apprentice care-providers and community health assistants, the Clinic plays its part in ensuring professional continuity.
