Knowledge, Research, Healing through networked expertise: The UKE

Welcome to the website of the International Office of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE). We are pleased to welcome you to our homepage.

With 80 clinics and institutes engaging in interdisciplinary collaboration within 14 centers, the UKE is one of the largest hospitals in northern Germany. Founded in 1889, we opened our new main building in early 2009, combining tradition and state-of-the-art technology.

In addition, we have gradually located other suppliers on the UKE grounds that complement the hospital’s service portfolio. We work with the RehaCentrum Hamburg (Hamburg Rehab Center), the Facharztklinik (Specialist Clinic) and the Dorint Four-Star Hotel in the immediate vicinity – further projects are in the works. By doing so, we are piece by piece implementing our vision of the “Eppendorf Health Park” in the heart of Hamburg.

The focus of our activities is always the human being – and the promotion of top-class university medicine for the treatment of highly complex diseases. The excellent interdisciplinary cooperation of our clinics in conjunction with research and teaching is of key importance and directly benefits our patients during treatment.

Of course the UKE is also active internationally. For many years patients from abroad seeking medical treatment in Germany have been coming to Hamburg to be treated by our renowned specialists.

On the pages linked here we have collected the most important information for international patients and their families. Please take a look around.
