Centro cantonale di fertilità

Quality and patients safety

From the beginning, the Cantonal Fertility Centre has been offering couples the maximum quality in the field of medicine and laboratory medicine.

The Regional Hospital of Locarno and the department for laboratory medicine (EOLAB) made many investments in order to ensure the maximum Swiss criteria for care and quality.
Our Centre is a member of FIVNAT-CH, the Swiss national IVF register, and works according to the Swiss law on reproductive medicine (LPMA).

The activities of the Centre have been authorized by the health authority of the Canton of Ticino and the quality of its activities is checked every two years by the cantonal medical officer.

The Laboratory for reproductive medicine has obtained the accreditation according to ISO/IEC 17025 for all of its activities since 2006.

The Regional Hospital of Locarno is the only health institution in Switzerland which in May 2008 obtained the accreditation for excellence from Joint Commission International, which confirmed its position as one of the health structures where quality and the safety of the patient is most important.
