Suva – More than an insurance company

Suva, founded in 1918, is the largest accident insurance company in Switzer­land. For more than 110,000 businesses employing a total of two million people in industry and commerce, as well as parts of the public sector, Suva is a reliable partner when it comes to preventing accidents and occupational diseases. Thanks to its innovative and award-winning New Case Management, Suva is further setting the benchmark for the rehabilitation of victims, in particular, of serious accidents. Two Suva-owned rehabilitation clinics are important contributors in this regard. Suva being a public corporation, all of its profits are entirely devoted to the policyholders in the form of lower premiums. In this way, Suva is helping Swiss companies keep their expenses as low as possible and, thus, contributes to their competitiveness.
