Dear residents of Zurich,
Health is our most valuable asset. The health of the people of Zurich and the developments in this field are very important to the Department of Health. It is committed to high-quality, safe, and economically feasible healthcare, to excellent medical services, medicine, food, and utensils, and to financially feasible health insurance premiums. Veterinary affairs are also part of our duties – because we want both humans and animals to be healthy.
I enjoy working on and advancing the already very good and diverse healthcare system in our canton together with everyone at the Department of Health.
