About

The Klinikum Vest was created in 2008 from the merger of two existing hospitals – the Paracelsus-Klinik Marl in Gelsenkirchen and the Knappschaftskrankenhaus in Recklinghausen. Back then, the two facilities already had a history of more than 50 and 100 years, respectively. In the meantime, 19,500 inpatients and a further 54,700 outpatients are treated annually in a total of twelve specialist departments at Klinikum Vest. The Klinikum Vest always focuses on the individual – regardless of religion, social group or ethnicity. The two hospitals have each specialized in different areas, so that UMCH students can draw on outstanding expertise during their practical stay at the hospital bed. The willingness of Klinikum Vest to change and cooperate, the formation of specialist centers and the networking of established doctors enable the two hospitals to respond optimally to each individual patient. The basis for this is both proven scientific knowledge and the use of modern technology.
