Apply for approval as a private clinic


If you want to operate a private hospital, you need a trade permit, a so-called concession. In this context, a hospital within the meaning of trade law is an institution that serves to heal and care for patients and in which patients are treated as inpatients, i.e. also accommodated and cared for.

Only private, commercially operated hospitals need such a permit. Public institutions and those operated for non-profit, charitable or scientific purposes do not need a permit. In contrast to these, the entrepreneur who runs the private hospital has the intention of making a profit from the operation.

You can, but you don't have to be a doctor yourself. If you are a doctor, a distinction must be made between facilities that serve the exercise of your freelance activity (e.g. the surgeon's clinic) and facilities that are not directly related to the freelance activity and are designed to make a profit.

The permit indicates whether it is used to operate a private hospital, a private maternity hospital or a private mental hospital (or a combination of these facilities). Homes in which mentally ill or mentally handicapped people are accommodated and only occasional medical care is provided are not private hospitals.
