The University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf is the largest hospital in Hamburg, incorporating 14 centers with 80 departments and more than 1,500 hospital beds. Founded in 1889, the UKE has opened its ultramodern new building in January 2009 and thus combines tradition with state-of- the-art technology. The UKE is currently the most modern hospital in Europe. The range of medical care extends from general diagnostic services to highly specialised and complex treatments, necessary for more uncommon diseases.

The hospital's medical treatment, science and research have an excellent international reputation. As a result, patients from Germany and from countries all over the world come to our hospital. Our patients can be sure of receiving state-of-the-art medical treatment, taking into account the latest knowledge and developments in medicine. The UKE has a specialized department dealing with all international patients, coordinating all organizational, financial and administrative issues.

The UKE attends the World Medical Tourism and Healthcare Congress yearly because it is a great opportunity to network with other players and learn about new developments within the medical tourism industry, said Dr. med. Catarina Schlueter, MBA; Managing Director International Office, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf.
