Nürnberg clinic is over 120 years old. Its story began in 1897 as the city hospital, with 6,800 patients per year, 160 employees and 761 beds.
Today there are more than 100,000 inpatients and 105,000 outpatients, 7,000 employees and 2,206 beds in two locations — in the north and south of Nürnberg. The northern interdisciplinary centres are far ahead of most clinics in Germany and Europe. The hospital is divided into 42 clinics, numerous medical institutes and departments. The number of students is around 420.
Although the number of patients and staff has remained almost unchanged over the years, since 1995 the number of inpatients has increased from 62,000 to 100,000. The average length of stay has decreased from 12 to 5.9 days — the clinic began to be treated not only more effectively, but also more speedy, saving patients time and money.
Continuous modernisation of buildings, expansion of treatment programs and innovations in the field of medical technology provide the standards of medical care at the highest level. For the city and the entire region, the Nürnberg Clinic is of great importance not only as a healthcare centre, but also as an important centre for education and training, as well as an engine for research and development
The Nürnberg Clinic uses its know-how as a hospital with a maximum level of performance with all the necessary special disciplines to create networks for certain common clinical pictures. The clinic's goal is to provide early detection, treatment and follow-up care, as well as to establish close cooperation between outpatient and inpatient treatment.
