The "Bergmannsheil" was founded in 1890 as the first casualty clinic in the world for unfortunate miners. Today, the "Bergmannsheil" is one of the most modern and most efficient emergency clinics and the University Hospital of Bochum. The modernization of the functional wing was an urgent need to respond to the increased demands.
Annually more than 19,000 patients are hospitalized and approximately 60 000 outpatients are treated in 22 departments with a total capacity of 622 beds. Bergmannsheil and its associated facilities and institutions employ over 2000 coworkers.
The construction of the functional center combines all essential departments to ensure rapid and improved treatment processes at a central location of the clinic. These include the reception center, the surgical center with fourteen operating rooms, intensive capacity of 56 beds as well as radiology and the central sterilization service of the clinic.
