University Hospital Zurich

The University Hospital Zurich ( _de. Universitätsspital Zürich) is the university hospital of Zürich, Switzerland. It is the country's largest hospital.

The first hospital in Zürich, whose continuation the University Hospital ultimately is, is recorded as having existed as early as 1204. The name, location and buildings have since changed many times. As of 2008, the hospital employs a staff of 6,100, providing medical care to 160,000 ambulant and over 30,000 stationary patients each year in 42 clinics.

Scientists and physicians of international renown who have practiced at the hospital include Ferdinand Sauerbruch, Adriano Aguzzi and Rolf M. Zinkernagel; the latter two received Nobel Prizes for research done at the hospital.
