Apply for admission as a private clinic


If you want to operate a private hospital, you need a trade permit, a so-called concession. A hospital within the meaning of commercial 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 fed.

Only private, commercially operated hospitals need such a permit. Public institutions and those operated for non-profit, charitable or scientific purposes do not need permission. In contrast to these, the entrepreneur who runs the private hospital has the intention of making a profit through 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 to carry out your freelance work (e.B. the surgeon's clinic) and institutions 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 nerve clinic (or a combination of those facilities). Homes in which mentally ill or mentally handicapped people are accommodated and only occasional medical care is provided are not private hospitals.
