The Cantonal Hospital of Graubünden in Chur in the Loëquartier is a hospital run by a foundation that arose from the merger of the (old) Cantonal Hospital (Rhaetian Cantonal and Regional Hospital ), the Catholic Cross Hospital and the Fontana Women's Clinic (Cantonal Women's Hospital Fontana). The new hospital center has retained all three locations.


The canton hospital was built between 1937–1941. It is the largest New Building work in Chur. In 1935 the Zurich architect Fred G. Brun and Rudolf Gaberel (1882–1963) from Graubünden were commissioned with the execution. The building was expanded into a ring-shaped structure in several stages; In 1993–2000, the architects Silvia Gmür and Livio Vacchini built the new D.

The Cantonal Hospital of Graubünden is a foundation under private law and is run independently without a state guarantee of deficits. The Cantonal Hospital of Graubünden is the largest private employer in the canton with over 2,000 employees.

The Cantonal Hospital of Graubünden has been working as a purchasing association PentaMedProc with the Cantonal Hospital Winterthur and the Biel Hospital Center since 2014 .
