2019 Full Year Results

Over the course of the last 18 months, all Swiss hospital operators have been affected by rapidly implemented regulatory changes related to outpatient tariff reductions and outmigration of care. We took actions to improve Hirslanden’s performance, including accelerated cost-saving initiatives and the introduction of operational efficiencies. As these plans started to take effect, they moderated the financial impact of the regulatory changes in the second half of the year, with Hirslanden delivering a 16% EBITDA margin for the full year, in line with guidance.
