With the Josef-Hospital Delmenhorst (JHD), another facility joins the growing list of UMCH teaching hospitals. This means that there are already 14 locations nationwide where students can undergo clinical-practical training from the 3rd year of their studies.
The JHD was created in 2016 through the merger of the former St. Josef-Stift Delmenhorst and the Klinikum Delmenhorst. With around 830 employees and a total of 290 beds, the hospital provides standard and specialized care. The facility, whose roots date back to 1879, has been repeatedly modernized over the decades and expanded to include various medical fields. The Josef Hospital Delmenhorst now houses 15 clinics – including a department for Spinal Surgery and Spinal Neurosurgery as well as a Clinic for Thoracic Surgery. Furthermore, the newest UMCH teaching hospital can look back on many years of experience in training medical professionals through its integrated school for nursing professions. In the future, the facility’s buildings will also be completely rebuilt, so UMCH students can look forward to a state-of-the-art learning environment.
