Our mission statement

The Katholische Klinikum (Catholic Clinic) is for everybody, from babies to older people. Right in the heart of the Ruhr Region. Our roots date back to 1848. And we are really proud of that. Tradition is, however, also a commitment to the present and future. We assume responsibility and want to help patients – with all our powers.

As a university clinic attached to the Ruhr University, we provide medical care to a high standard of quality. Physicians, therapists and nurses work hand in hand. It is absolutely essential to the provision of relief and cures that patients remain the focus of our actions, that they are listened to and that communications are maintained on a warm and personal footing.

We want to deliver top medical care with a personal touch and our patients' health is our ultimate goal. In these activities, we want to be innovative and to continuously improve – in our daily work and in our medical university research. Our efforts always focus on our patients. The only thing that counts is what helps patients.
