Rehabilitation, according to the definition given by the World Health Organisation (1968), is: « a process aimed at enabling patients to reach and maintain their optimal physical, sensory, intellectual, psychological and social functional levels. Rehabilitation provides disabled people with the tools they need to attain independence and self-determination.»

It is with this in mind that the Suva created the Clinique romande de réadaptation (rehabilitation clinic). It is located in the outskirts of Sion, capital of the Valais, right next to the hospital and the 'Institut Central des Hôpitaux Valaisans'. Its total surface is of 34'000 m2 and over 350 collaborators work there.

The sunny and mild climate, the beauty of the surrounding mountains, the closeness to the town and the diverse tracks on site permit the patients to increase their activities in function with their renewed capacities.

The Suva also has a clinic in the German speaking part of Switzerland, in Bellikon.
