The Klinikum Weser-Egge is run by the catholic hospital group Weser-Egge. It works in four locations: Höxter, Bad Driburg, Brakel and Steinheim. The four locations have 859 beds between them, 25 specialised clinics and 1,400 members of staff. Each year the group treats around 30,000 in- and more than 50,000 out-patients.
In the 1980s, the first open psychiatry unit was opened at the St. Josef Hospital in Bad Driburg. Another focus is on surgery: The general surgery unit specialises in minimally invasive surgery, while the vascular surgery department specialises in the treatment of chronic wounds, like those of diabetes patients. The internal medicine unit (medical clinic I) specialises in cardiology and the medical clinic II in gastroenterology and diabetes. The hospital also houses an obesity centre.
The Klinikum Weser-Egge has an affiliation with the Georg-August-Universität in Göttingen and acts as a teaching hospital (Akademisches Lehrkrankenhaus) that will accept German students during their practical year (Praktisches Jahr). Places are available in internal medicine, general, viszeral- and vascular surgery, anaesthetics, gynaecology and obstetrics and orthopaedics/trauma surgery.
