Important information for patients
Your state of health renders a stay in hospital necessary? Then please, first of all, contact the office of the relevant clinic or specialist unit and arrange an appointment. On the day of your scheduled admission, please go first to the gate at the main entrance, where we will take down your patient details, including your name, address, telephone number and nationality, insurance status and, where applicable, any existing payment exemption. We have put together a checklist for you detailing the documents you need to bring with you.
Important information for visitors
Visits from family and friends are especially important during a stay in hospital. The company and support of visitors can have a positive influence on the healing process and help patients to cope better with their unaccustomed situation. That’s why we would like to encourage family and friends to visit patients in our hospital.
We do, however, ask visitors to wait outside the patient’s room while medical or nursing staff are inside, providing care.
Please note that daily visiting time ends at 8 p.m. in the interests of a peaceful night’s rest for our patients.
