Universitätsklinikum Halle (Saale)

Referral/Teaching Hospital | Halle, Germany

Hospital description

Medicine has been studied in Halle since 1694. After reunification the facilities were modernised and expanded. There are 29 clinics including those for out-patients and 17 institutes. 39.000 inpatients and 120.000 outpatients are treated here in a year.
With a history spanning over 300 years, it is one of the oldest medical schools in Germany and Europe. Germany’s first University Hospital was founded here. It was also here that the first medical doctor title was awarded to a woman, and where one of the world’s largest anatomical collections was amassed. The first kidney transplants and open-heart surgeries in the former GDR were carried out in Halle. Today, they transplant over 40 kidneys in a year, many from living donors. They also have a pressure chamber to treat for example diving accidents and do cochlear implantations.

Since 2006 the Klinikum is a legally independent institution under public law.
