20.11.2020 – The report commissioned by the Health Directorate on the supervisory and management structures of the University Hospital Zurich is now available. 

It contains a comprehensive review of corporate governance and 29 recommendations derived from it.

In recent months, abuses have come to light in several clinics of the University Hospital Zurich (USZ).

The report now available contains 29 recommendations. 

These concern the relationship between the canton and the USZ, the integration of the USZ with the University of Zurich (UZH) and the internal conditions in the USZ.

The recommendations of the subcommittee appointed by the responsible supervisory committee of the cantonal council, which should be available by the end of January 2021, will also be included in the overall assessment.

Even before the report was available, the USZ had initiated its own improvement measures and had already implemented some of them.

For example, an external platform for anonymous reporting of suspected misconduct was set up, a concept for improving risk management and compliance was adopted, and the position of Corporate Compliance Officer was newly assigned to the hospital management.
