About Leipzig University Hospital

leipzig-university-hospital.jpgEvery year some 400,000 people from Germany and abroad entrust their health to Leipzig University Hospital. The hospital's employees – doctors, nursing and administrative personnel along with staff employed by external contractors – assist patients back to health and well-being. Leipzig University Hospital is distinguished by the highest standards of quality, its human touch, highly qualified employees, state-of-the-art technology and its outstanding cost-effectiveness. With the exception of cardiac surgery, all areas of medicine are represented.

Providing excellent, high-quality medicine, Leipzig University Hospital is one of the just two maximum care hospitals in Saxony. Leipzig University Hospital enjoys one of the most advanced structural and technical infrastructures in Europe. Minimally invasive surgery, the computer-assisted planning and performance of operations, unique diagnostic possibilities, the development and application of new types of therapy, and the optimum interdisciplinary networking of the individual specialist disciplines ensure the highest quality of patient care.

Given that support from research and development are part of the core tasks of university medicine, Leipzig University Hospital is inseparably linked with the university's Faculty of Medicine. Intensive research is conducted in the various institutes of the hospital and the faculty in the fields of human and dental medicine. The findings are directly put into practice by medical staff.
