On September 2, 2020, the District Hospitals Darmstadt-Dieburg and UMCH agreed on a future cooperation. The Hessian hospital association includes the two district hospitals Groß-Umstadt and Jugenheim. The growing number of UMCH teaching hospitals throughout Germany has thus now risen to 9 facilities.
In Groß-Umstadt, UMCH students will in future have the opportunity to spend some of their bedside teaching time in a specialist psychiatric department (Center for Mental Health), which opened in 2009. The facility also includes 12 other specialist departments, such as the Clinics for Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery/Facial Surgery and Radiology. The district hospital Jugenheim on the other hand is a special clinic for the surgical care of patients with artificial hip or knee joints. In addition to a Clinic for Orthopedics and Traumatology, the facility also houses the Center for Acute and Postacute Intensive Care Medicine. Thus, the District Hospitals of Darmstadt-Dieburg offer UMCH students various possibilities for orientation with regard to their later specialization while they are still studying.
