Applying for admission as a private clinic


If you want to operate a private hospital, you need a commercial license, a so-called concession. A hospital within the meaning of trade law is an institution that serves the healing and care of patients and in which the 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 require a permit. In contrast to these, the entrepreneur who runs the private hospital intends to make a profit from the operation.

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

The licence 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.
