The name is simply derived from the German “spitalextern” and refers to health care, help, support and advice provided outside hospitals or nursing homes, usually in the client’s home. There are 577 public Spitex organizations, 289 private ones and 1,105 self-employed nursing professionals in Switzerland (Federal Statistical Office (BFS), as at 2017, in French and German only). They all promote, support and enable living at home for people of all age groups who depend on help to do so.
