Team Head Office Davos

The location of Davos as the headquarters of CK-CARE was not by chance. As the highest city in the Alps, Davos has developed since the end of the 19th century into a center for pulmonary patients who have found a cure in the exceptional clima quality; for skin cases as well for the past 40 years. In the meantime, Davos has become the site of several educational and research institutes and has officially been designated a «City of Knowledge» since 2005.
