Swiss Paraplegic Centre

The Swiss Paraplegic Centre (SPC) Nottwil is a privately owned clinic, recognised nationwide, specialising in primary care and holistic rehabilitation of patients with spinal cord injuries. In addition to medical and therapeutic services, it also includes advisory services, as well as research in the area of paraplegia, prevention, and so on.

The largest of Switzerland's four special clinics for para and tetraplegics is in Nottwil. The other three are located in Basel, Sion and Zurich. Nowadays, the SPC consistently treats over 70% of all people with spinal paralysis in Switzerland. As a private clinic, the SPC also cares for patients who have general insurance cover, thanks to the support of the Swiss Paraplegic Foundation. This type of insurance accounts for 75% of the patients. The clinic is fully occupied all year round.
