Private Clinic

For patients with supplementary health insurance or for self-pay patients

A stay at our modern private clinic provides patients who have supplementary health insurance or self-pay patients with an ideal opportunity to retreat to a well-protected environment. Thus detached from the oftentimes stressful daily life, the patient will find the peace of mind essential to discovering his way out of crisis. The high quality of our comprehensive treatment program, the benevolent atmosphere and the amenities of a sophisticated hotel are essential features of our open ward private clinic.

While our private clinic is located in the midst of the countryside, it is still near by the picturesque little town of Liestal. It reveals a marvellous view over the valley and the neighbouring wildlife park.

We focus on a dialogue centred approach which stimulates the development of a trustworthy therapeutic relationship. We greatly emphasize a humane, trustworthy and intensive relationship between every single patient and the interdisciplinary treatment team. Our treatment spectrum encompasses a broad range of mental disorders.

We have a long-lasting expertise and experience in the treatment of mental disorders. Prof. Dr. med Joachim  Küchenhoff, medical director of the division of adult psychiatry, heads the private clinic as chief physician. He is assisted by a team of specialized and highly qualified personnel.


The services offered are aimed at adult patients of all ages who have private or semi-private supplementary hospital insurance. The clinic is also open, at a surcharge, to patients who have basic health insurance or to self-pay patients.

Admission is possible round-the-clock 365 days per year. Please present yourself directly at the central admission of the clinic for psychiatry and psychotherapy Basel-Country, Bienentalstrasse 7, 4410 Liestal,
