State-of-the-art diagnostic facilities and patient-friendly therapeutic approaches are the hallmark of the cardiology department at the Schüchtermann-Klinik. This specialist department is divided up into six sub- departments
which specialise in different clinical pictures and treatment options.
The cardiology department works closely together with the other specialist departments at the Schüchtermann-Klinik. This integrated care for all cardiac patients is the special hallmark of the clinic: in addition to diagnosis and therapy, which are frequently discussed in the INTERDISCIPLINARY CARDIAC TEAM, the clinic can also offer preventive medicine and high-performance diagnostic services at the INSTITUTE FOR PREVENTION AND SPORTS MEDICINE. Furthermore, due to the clinic’s own rehabilitation department and its cooperation arrangements with medicos.Osnabrück, patients have all the possibilities at their disposal for inpatient and outpatient cardiological rehabilitation.
CARDIAC CENTRE IN OSNABRÜCK-BAD ROTHENFELDE
The Cardiology department of the Schüchtermann-Klinik belongs to the Herzzentrum Osnabrück-Bad Rothenfelde Management GmbH. The Herzzentrum (cardiac centre) works under the joint sponsorship of Schüchtermann-Schiller’sche Kliniken Bad Rothenfelde GmbH & Co. KG, Klinikum Osnabrück GmbH and since 2003 also Marienhospital Osnabrück GmbH. The close interaction of the three large cardiological sites facilitates a comprehensive cardiological acute and emergency care of all heart cases within the territory of the city of Osnabrück and the surrounding district.
A collaboration between three different hospital authorities such as this is unparalleled throughout Germany. As a result of the stipulation of diagnostic and therapeutic focal points and the possibility of exchanging personnel and improving the capacity utilisation of large equipment, numerous synergy effects can be achieved.
In addition to the cooperation with other hospitals within the Osnabrück district and beyond, the concept of the cardiac centre also includes cooperation with the surgeries of specialists in the region and throughout Germany. Within the cardiology quality network in Osnabrück, meetings with cardiology specialists, internists and general practitioners are held every three months, during which diagnoses and treatment strategies are discussed. This enables uniform cardiology standards and compliance with common quality standards.
