Which hospital in Basel Bethesda or Merian Iselin?

I'm going to have a five day stay in hospital later this year - surgery followed by 4 days recovery. I've a choice of Bethesda or Merian Iselin.

I'm siding with Merian Iseling at the moment because it is closer to home and its website has English! But does anyone have experience (good or bad) of either - which is to be preferred?

Well, we've been to Bethesda 3 times, although I doubt you'll be staying in the maternity ward(... ), our experiences have always been positive.

English not a problem, and by the time we were there for the third, we were being treated like family...

The food is good too.

HTH

Hope it is nothing too serious.

Re: Which hospital in Basel Bethesda or Merian Iselin?

Sorry, although I do have experience with two separate hospitals here in Basel, neither of them were either of those so I can not offer a personal opinion.

However, hubby had MRI done at Merian Iselin while I had mine done at Claraspital and while I have no complaints about mine, comparing stories, I think his experience was better than mine. (Of course, his knees are much more slender than my belly so that may account for part of the difference )

I believe his mother had her knee replacement done at Merian Iselin and has remarked within my hearing before that it is a good hospital.

Nothing serious, but will prevent problems that could arise when I finally give in to the bizarre idea that I'm aging. I've been in Universitšt, Liestal and Bruderholz... but neither of these two. I've some months to decide. I should probably just go and look!

My surgeon operates in both, and says their equally good. But he may well never have been a patient there!
