The University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf is the largest among Hamburg's hospitals with approximately 1460 hospital beds. Each year the medical center treats around 80 000 in-patients. Additionally,... more approximately 260 000 out-patients as well as 113 000 emergency patients are treated.
Similar to most university hospitals, the UKE offers a complete range of treatment options for patients. At the same time, new ideas in research and new approaches for the diagnosis and therapy of diseases are applied. The range of medical care extends from overall diagnostic service to highly specialised and complex treatments necessary for uncommon diseases. For the Hamburg region, a large number of therapies and complicated surgical procedures, especially in the field of transplantation (heart, liver, kidney as well as bone marrow) can only be performed in the UKE.
All common diseases are treated. Furthermore, the UKE has more than 160 clinics for complex, rare and chronic syndromes - e.g. the treatment of muscle diseases, blood coagulatory disorders, heart rhythm disorders, impaired vision or obsessive-compulsive disorders. A wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic treatment options is available for metabolic diseases, allergies and neural diseases. Patients with complex diseases, cancer and other disorders requiring a comprehensive treatment benefit from the interdisciplinary cooperation within the UKE. A modern stroke unit with four patient beds provides optimal conditions after an acute stroke.
Endoscopic techniques, further developed and advanced within the UKE along with various other disciplines, have come to international recognition. The departments of radiology and neuroradiology offer a wide range of modern imaging techniques. Highly specialised laboratories and tissue analysis performed within the UKE departments complement the clinical diagnosis.
Terrible place, I´ve waited for 3 months for my autistic daughter neurological exams, and when arrived there, the told me that she has no appointment made. I told that maybe they made a mistake not making... more the appointment, they told me that my daughter could only do the exams only in 6 months in advance. I told that this exams were very important for her diagnostic, and for her treatment, and the told me to meet help with psicotherapists, not with them, that they couldn´t help her in any way. That was a huge disappointment.
Mi sister who recently arrived from Costa Rica and had no insurance yet, was send away because of it by a very unfriendly and unhelpful blond woman at the emergency place. No empathy nor options nor alternatives... more were given. Went to another hospital and there she was immediately hospitalized because of a risk of kidney failure. Very disappointing to see this in a German hospital.
