When the psychosomatic hospital in Windach opened its doors in August 1976, it was the first of its kind in the German-speaking countries. Other hospitals followed its model, after the behavioural therapy concept had proven to be successful in the treatment of psychosomatic and neurotic disorders. In the years between 1976 and 2011 Klinik Windach treated more than 25,000 patients. The rising demand for psychosomatic treatment and care lead to the expansion of the hospital in 1993 and the addition of the day-care hospital, Westend, in Munich. More beds and day-care spaces were added in the following years. Today the hospitals have a capacity of 177 beds in Windach and 50 day-care spaces in Munich. The hospital specialises in anxiety disorders, burnout, depression, personality disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, pain disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorders.
Two of Klinik Windach’s doctors were named as best in the country by the news magazine Focus-Gesunheit’s 2017 ranking of German doctors.
The hospital is affiliated with the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) and acts as a teaching hospital (Akademisches Lehrkrankenhaus) that will accept German students during their practical year (Praktisches Jahr). Places are available in psychiatry.
