About the District Hospitals Darmstadt-Dieburg

The hospital group District Hospitals Darmstadt-Dieburg is divided into the district hospitals in Groß-Umstadt and Jugenheim. The group can refer to a history of more than 70 years and is responsible for about 15,000 annual patient treatments.

The District Hospital Groß-Umstadt was founded in 1968. Since then, there have been numerous conversions and extensions which have contributed to the continuous development and improvement of hospital operations. In 1969 – one year after the opening – a nursing school was established, thanks to which the district clinic can look back on decades of experience in the training of junior medical staff. Most recently, the psychiatric department “Center for Mental Health” was added in 2009 in the course of the many construction measures. The hospital has a total of 13 specialist departments, in which our students from the 3rd year of study onwards can gain practical experience at the bedside.

The District Hospital Jugenheim was founded in 1947 and houses the specialist departments of Orthopedics and Traumatology as well as the Center for Acute and Postacute Intensive Care Medicine. In the orthopaedic and trauma surgery special facility, more than 800 endoprostheses as well as replacement operations on loosened joints are performed annually. For quality assurance purposes, regular checks are carried out by independent external bodies such as health insurance companies or the Quality Assurance Office of the State of Hesse. Here, the district hospital Jugenheim regularly achieves the best results.
