Find out more about the history of PHYSIOZENTRUM, the largest independent physiotherapy provider in Switzerland.
A newcomer to the fold: The long-established Physiotherapie Gygax & Zurbuchen practice in Bern joins the Physiozentrum Group. With new branches in Dübendorf (Stettbach), Kleinbasel, and Altstetten and Enge (both in Zurich), there will soon be 25 Physiozentrum locations.
During the coronavirus lockdown, the masseurs are at home full time, the physios part time. Work is in full swing on the building sites at Bern station, Aarau and Lenzburg.
Medical massage is becoming increasingly prominent. New locations in Wallisellen, Baden, Lucerne, Biel, Solothurn, Olten and Chur.
Despite very well-equipped training rooms, all attempts to gain subscription customers have failed over the years. 2018 marks the end of all ambitions in this respect.
Expansion into Winterthur. Further locations in Zurich and Basel are also added. With around 100 employees, the company is now big enough for its first proper party.
Opening of the fifth practice in Wil (canton of St. Gallen). A sixth follows in Uster (canton of Zurich), in a new building on a site once occupied by a kebab stand.
Opening of the largest location to date at Zurich’s Bahnhofplatz.
Opening of branches in St. Gallen and Basel. Because the three locations are at least one and a half hours apart, the founders now spend most of their time on the train.
The company is the first physiotherapy provider in the country to offer the option of booking appointments online.
Opening of the first location in Wetzikon (canton of Zurich). The practice is 270 square metres in size and sets new standards in the Zurich Oberland with its MTT room.
However, the lavish reception suite is looking a bit empty.
The solution? A practice assistant, of course. Since then, practice assistants have been indispensable points of contact for patients and the team’s source of all the latest gossip.
Physiozentrum.ch AG founded in Uster (canton of Zurich), in a former kebab stand that will later be demolished.
