December 21, 2021

St. Vincenz Hospital in Limburg near Frankfurt am Main is the newest UMFST-UMCH Teaching Hospital. The facility was founded as early as 1850 and can thus draw on 171 years of experience.

The hospital, which is rich in tradition, has a total of 511 beds distributed among 15 specialist departments. Around 28,000 inpatients are treated here every year. These are cared for by around 1,500 employees. Students can gain practical experience here in the clinical-practical study phase from the third year of study, among other areas, in the fields of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Nephrology and Hypertensiology, as well as Radiation Therapy and Radiooncology. In addition to modern medical technology, new, gentle treatment methods are also used, which make it possible to perform outpatient procedures particularly frequently. As a teaching facility of the Justus Liebig University in Giessen, St. Vincenz Hospital also already has a wealth of experience in the training of future physicians. The department heads consist of experienced and accomplished academic training personnel with existing teaching assignments at the university hospitals in Aachen, Bonn, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Göttingen and Heidelberg. In addition to the St. Vincenz Hospital itself, the operating company also runs its own training facility for healthcare professions, the so-called BILDUNGSWERKstadt.
