The children’s clinic ‘Wildermeth’ in the early 2000s decided to join the hospital complex Biel. This is envisaged to improve its services and simultaneously reduce operating costs through synergies with the existing hospital. This integration was not without problems since the clinic for children, as institution has existed for decades, did not wanted to lose its identity and visibility.
