As the only hospital group in Germany HELIOS operates its own hospitals ranging from basic care starting at 46 beds to maximum care with 1,400 beds. The acute care hospitals offer nearly the full spectrum of medical services at a high level of quality. Some HELIOS clinics are renowned beyond Germany’s borders for their outstanding medical achievements.
Postacute care hospitals
HELIOS rehabilitation hospitals specialize in follow-up and post-acute medical care. The 27 facilities, consisting of 22 rehabilitation clinics and five rehabilitation centers, offer care options ranging from out-patient through to semi-inpatient and full inpatient treatment. Neurology, cardiology/internal medicine, orthopedics, oncology, psychosomatic medicine/psychotraumatology, hearing problems and geriatrics are areas of particular emphasis. HELIOS hospitals’ high medical standards, based on long years of experience in rehabilitative medicine, are maintained through continuous ongoing training for medical and non-medical staff, combined with strict quality controls.
By combining senior citizens’ homes and acute medical care, HELIOS gives residents access to optimum, fast medical care. HELIOS has already implemented this intelligent and trend-setting concept of short distances for seniors at nine of its hospitals.
Medical care centers
HELIOS strives to expand its integrated medical care offering. This is made possible through cooperations with non-hospital providers, especially local doctors’ practices, as well as our own medical care centers close to the hospitals. Our medical care centers are only established where they offer a useful complement to our hospitals and when high-quality outpatient care cannot be guaranteed over a long period through cooperations with local doctors’ practices. In medical care centers, patients are treated before or after an inpatient hospital stay. An important goal is to avoid unnecessary duplication in examinations, because high quality and competent medical care in conjunction with the rational use of resources best serves the well-being of patients.
