Delme Klinikum Delmenhorst (DKD) was founded in 2016 through the merger of the long-established hospitals St. Josef-Stift Delmenhorst and Klinikum Delmenhorst. Through its predecessors, DKD can look back on a history of almost 150 years. The hospital, which will be moving into completely new premises in the near future, currently registers around 14,500 inpatient cases per year. It has 15 specialist departments and 7 medical care centers in the fields of Neurosurgery, Urology, Radiology, Trauma Surgery and Orthopedics, Physiotherapy, Pain Therapy as well as Visceral Surgery and Proctology. Quality control is of particular importance at DKD. This is expressed, among other things, in the various quality seals that reflect the high level of professionalism of the facility. The mission statement of Delme Klinikum Delmenhorst is based on humanity, current scientific standards and economic efficiency. In addition, great importance is attached to continuous development and a common orientation towards goals. Through the integration of an in-house nursing school, DKD can also draw on many years of experience in the training of medical professionals. Our students can therefore look forward to excellent structures and diverse areas of activity during their clinical-practical training in Delmenhorst.
