Headline: Hospital Statistics 2019 – No increase in inpatient hospital costs once again in 2019

In 2019, one million people received inpatient care in a Swiss hospital or birthing centre. This corresponds to 12% of the total population, which is roughly the same as in the previous year. The number of inpatient hospital stays was 1.47 million. Hospitals’ inpatient costs stood still for the second year running. In contrast, for outpatient costs, a rise of 4.6% was observed in 2019 (2018: 3%). These are some of the results from the Hospital Statistics from the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
