Since we started out in 1984, we have consistently pursued one goal: To work together to improve the quality of life of cardiac and diabetic patients! Our patients are guaranteed the best possible treatment with the lowest possible risk through a harmonious combination of state-of-the-art high-performance medicine on the one hand, and human warmth and understanding on the other.

Medical competence and human understanding

Our patients are guaranteed the best possible treatment with the lowest possible risk through a harmonious combination of state-of-the-art highperformance medicine and human understanding. Our competent teams of physicians and nurses are on hand to help around the clock. We respect the dignity and individuality of our patients, independently of their nationality, religion or ideology. Our medical and nursing services are backed up by pleasant surroundings, a high degree of comfort, healthy food and a whole range of extras. True to the idea of partnership in thought and deed, patients are involved in treatment decisions from the start. We cooperate closely with ambulatory physicians, referring hospitals, health insurance companies and the various social services in order to ensure that patients receive the best care before, during and after their stay at our Center.

Employees and corporate culture

Our competent, motivated and performance-oriented staff vouch for our success. They are employed at our Center according to their specialist and personal qualifications and then individually stretched and encouraged in line with their obvious skills and talents. Esteem, transparency and commitment at all levels are the foundations of our business culture. Mutual respect, fairness and team spirit are the framework for our actions and communication. Protecting the health and safety of our employees is a crucial element of hospital policy and forms an integral part of all our business decisions. Our senior staff have a very particular responsibility to function as positive role models. The success of the Heart and Diabetes Center NRW requires the commitment of every single employee day in, day out. Satisfied patients are our greatest motivation! Together with our cooperation partners, we have managed to acquire an international reputation of outstanding competence. A reputation which has now become a global obligation.

Quality, safety and personal care

Our extraordinarily high patient numbers and consequent experience guarantee excellent quality. Systematic quality management means that we achieve top medical performance, smooth routines and interdisciplinary cooperation, all of which benefit both patients and staff. We aim to impress our patients and referring hospitals through excellent medical services, standardized routines, active involvement and the human touch.

Research, co-operation and economic perspective

Four Clinics with affiliated institutes and services comprise a leading center of competence, both nationally and internationally, which is setting sustained standards for the treatment of cardiac, vascular and diabetic diseases. As the University hospital of the Ruhr-University of Bochum, we also make a significant contribution to research and teaching. We possess a Center for Clinical Research and Development which is responsible for commuting clinical theory to innovational practice. As the host of numerous seminars, symposia, as well as national and international congresses, we exchange ideas at the highest scientific level: a transfer of expertise which ultimately benefits the individual patient.

In a setting of natural beauty, away from the hustle and bustle of city life, we have developed to become the largest heart and diabetes center worldwide. In Bad Oeynhausen we enjoy an excellent infrastructure including a network of strong regional, national and international partners. Economic decisions which are future- and growth-oriented, yet gentle and responsible in their use of resources, facilitate patient care at local and national levels, while creating jobs and training opportunities within the region.

Our mission

Together we endeavor to make a stay in our hospital as pleasant for patients as it can possibly be, as well as to give them a good quality of life despite their disease and whatever their age.
