Careum combines tradition with vision. The foundations for the Campus were laid in 1882 with the establishment of a training institute for nursing. The foundation known as the “Schwesternschule und Krankenhaus vom Roten Kreuz Zürich-Fluntern” (Red Cross Nursing School and Hospital) eventually became the Careum Foundation in 2004.

Today, the Careum Campus serves as an example to the health care sector as a place to learn and come together. Trainees, students, teachers and researchers benefit from unique training and continuing education opportunities and the teaching and research work.
