4 Welcome to: excellence for you The Pyramid Clinic has been dedicated to its vision of achieving excellence in every area, since Your choice of doctor is your starting point and is crucial for the success of your treatment. This is why the Pyramid Clinic at the Lake works on the principle of affiliated specialists. Our surgeons are leading specialists in their fields. Each procedure is carefully planned by the specialist and the Pyramid Clinic team, booked into the clinic, discussed with the nursing staff and arranged with the hospitality team. You are professionally accompanied right to the last moment of your discharge from the clinic. We offer a maximum, personal commitment to service in both medicine and hospitality, as well as individuality, flexibility, and in particular continuity of medical and nursing care. The Pyramid Clinic owes its success to this service excellence, which we guarantee daily. We provide the highest medical quality and apply all the resources available to us to promote recovery. The thousands of procedures carried out at the clinic have shown that one of the best luxury goods is very simple: we take enough time for you. Guest Relations: we build relationships We were one of the first clinics to pioneer a new concept in private medicine Guest Relations, a service which originated in exclusive hotels. The Guest Relations team takes care of matters over and above the medical and nursing requirements of our patients and looks after their well-being. They will provide you with a personal contact person to assist you and will contact you before your admission. This ensures that we can take your needs and wishes into account and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
5 Hospitality and that little bit extra Our clinic is well known for offering all the comfort of a four-star hotel. As well as the high standard of medical care and individual attention provided, one of the main reasons for our high level of patient satisfaction is the exclusive style and attractive facilities of our establishment and our patient rooms in particular. This factor is especially important for longer-term stays. As a clinic for privately insured and self-paying patients, we offer comfortably equipped and stylishly furnished suites, single and twin rooms. Our aim is for you to feel at home in the warm and personal atmosphere. All rooms have a multimedia terminal with a flat screen television / touch screen and built-in telephone. You can use the terminal to watch television, access the Internet, listen to the radio or watch a video on demand. The clinic s own wireless network provides you with free Internet access via your own laptop or smartphone. The bathrooms are also designed with such attention to detail that you will feel more like a hotel guest in your private room than a patient. Varied daily routine We try to make the day as comfortable as possible for you. Daily visits by doctors and nurses provide a pleasant rhythm to the day. In addition, you can decide on your own meal times and arrange your day as you wish. We would like to ensure a warm, friendly environment. You can receive visitors at any time. If your condition allows it, a stroll by the lake provides a welcome change. On request, we can also organise external services such as a beautician or hairdresser. Please let the nursing staff or the Guest Relations team know any special wishes at your earliest convenience. A variety of daily newspapers (International Herald Tribune, Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Tages-Anzeiger) and selected magazines are available for all of our patients free of charge. A selection of other newspapers and magazines is also available for you to purchase at reception.
6 First clinic with à-la-carte service Since 2009, the Pyramid has enjoyed a kitchen equipped to the best and most up-to-date hotel standards. Special features of our hospitality include our à la carte service and that you can decide when to have your meals. All dishes are freshly prepared with first-class ingredients of the season. The chef and his team learnt their trade in haute cuisine and have demonstrated their skills in well-known restaurants. Room service for patients and guests Patients at the Pyramid Clinic are free to choose both their meals and their meal times themselves. In other words: hospital meals with fixed ordering and eating times are a thing of the past. This also means that the nurses at the Pyramid can concentrate on their core competencies. We have catering staff to take orders and serve meals. Our room service staff take your order and send it via a hand-held device directly to the kitchen. The order is triggered as soon as it is received by the kitchen. As well as our patients, doctors and guests can also enjoy the delights of the new Pyramid cuisine. Visitors can order from our menu at any time. We place great emphasis on seasonal, market-fresh, quality foods that are both easily digestible and healthy. The menu includes delicious fish, meat and vegetarian dishes. Our cuisine takes into account any medical needs, diets or intolerances that our patients may have. This means that patients who follow a specific diet or require puréed foods do not miss out. Every dish is freshly prepared with great attention to detail.
7 Outstanding quality every day Quality management is a core element of the Pyramid Clinic. As a member of the Swiss Leading Hospitals (SLH), we are committed to the highest quality standards in quality management, the accreditation of specialists, medical care, nursing, hospitality and administration. Any clinic wanting to become a member of the SLH is presented with a catalogue of criteria with which they must comply. They must fulfil no less than 60 mandatory criteria and at least 50 percent of the recommended criteria. In addition, applicant clinics must also pass a strict assessment conducted by an external inspection committee. Retention of the standards set forth in the catalogue is in turn reviewed every three years and guarantees the exceptional services for the medium- and long-term. This quality assurance policy is based on the EFQM-Model for Excellence and provides an unparalleled milestone for Swiss healthcare. Patient satisfaction is regularly sought and published. The Pyramid Clinic at the Lake is one of the frontrunners in these evaluations and has led the ranking for many years in all areas. Prepared for visitors People undergoing a surgical operation are often escorted by family members or close friends so it is very important for us to be responsive to the needs of our visitors. There are no fixed visiting hours in the single rooms. There are no restrictions for the parents of child patients: parents can stay in the same room as the child. For adults, family members may stay overnight on request and if there is sufficient capacity. Our small, select bistro is open for our patients and their visitors from 7 a.m. through to 9 p.m. You can have your meals with family members and friends, either in your room or in the bistro.
8 Tiefenb Station How to find us The Pyramid Clinic at the Lake is easy to reach by public transport: take tram line 2 or 4 to the Höschgasse stop, and from there it is around a 5-minute walk towards the lake. Or take the Küsnacht / Zollikon bus to the Elektrowatt stop, which is close to the clinic. Our underground car park is available free of charge for all patients and visitors, and for arrivals or departures by car. You can register directly via the intercom at the entrance to the garage. We wish you a pleasant stay at the clinic. Klinik Pyramide Simply the Top Bellerivestrasse 34, CH-8034 Zurich, Switzerland Phone +41 (0) , Fax +41 (0) ,
