Inpatient treatment

The hospital attends to you with a pleasant atmosphere and highly qualified nursing staff, taking care of your needs throughout your inpatient stay. The medical treatment is personally supervised by Dr. Boack and his specially trained medical personnel.

Highly dedicated and competent, we take care of your recovery while you stay at our ward, thereby supporting you in being able to go back home soon.

Arrival and departure can be a challenge for the patient. To make your journey as comfortable and hassle-free as possible, we are happy to provide you with information and advice on the phone. Whether you are looking for a hotel or the right train or flight connection – we are at your service.

Our overall objective is to analyze your medical condition and pain, to provide operational support and help you get back on your feet as carefree as possible.
