Your Well-Being is our Mission

The Theresienkrankenhaus and St. Hedwig-Klinik GmbH compromise two prestigious medical institutions in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region. Both hospitals entered into service providing health care at the two current locations in 1929, and thus look back on a long tradition of Christian medical and nursing care.

Today, the Theresienkrankenhaus and St. Hedwig-Klinik GmbH is a hospital of central provision. It offers its more than 50,000 patients a year a synthesis of modern medicine of the highest standard and state-of-the-art medical technology in its many highly-specialised departments, combined with a reputation for outstanding treatment of its patients with excellent Christian care and concern.

Around 1,500 employees work together hand in hand to ensure your well-being in the twelve leading departments and intensive care units (all of which offer beds), as well as in the many other diagnostic and functional areas. Doctors, nurses, pharmacists, medical technicians, physiotherapists, other specialised therapists, kitchen, cleaning and service staff, as well as pastoral care, social services and administration personnel do their utmost every day, so that you, our patients, are well cared for, well treated and well looked after, both during your illness and in all aspects of your stay in our hospital.

Many of the departments in the Theresienkrankenhaus and St. Hedwig-Klinik have formed centres and treat diseases in an interdisciplinary way. In tumour boards, tumour illnesses are discussed from the various perspectives of the medical professions represented and the best possible treatment path is individually decided. We also work closely with many external collaborating partners in order to ensure optimum provision, which is agreed upon by all parties, before, during and after the hospital stay.

The Theresienkrankenhaus has its own hospital pharmacy which produces, inter alia, cytostatic drugs, and is consulted for advice on medication. The pharmacy also supplies other hospitals in the region with medicines.

Our range of services is complemented by those offered by the Vinzenz von Paul Schule. Here, the Theresienkrankenhaus and St. Hedwig-Klinik GmbH secure the education and training of more than 250 young men and women in the various nursing professions.
