About “University Children’s Hospital Basel”

The University Children’s Hospital Basel (UKBB) is an independent, university-based centre of competence for paediatric and juvenile medicine, as well as for teaching and research.

The UKBB exists since 1999. On January 29, 2011, after several years of planning and constructing, the UKBB started operations in its new location at Spitalstrasse 33 in Basel. The colourful front of the building is its landmark. Nearly 900 staff members from different departments take care of around 6’700 stationary infants, children and adolescents and perform around 84’000 ambulant treatments each year. The biggest children’s orthopaedics department and one of the biggest children’s emergency units are located at the UKBB.

The Children’s Hospital Basel was founded on 2 January 1862, when it opened as a new hospital on the banks of the Rhine in Kleinbasel (Lesser Basel). The hospital continued to grow until 1999, when the UKBB was created from the merging of the Basel Children’s Hospital and the Bruderholz Children’s Clinic. Dr. med. Conrad E. Müller has been CEO of the clinic since May 2008.
