UKE has a long tradition in medical treatment of international patients, who come from all over the world for treatment by famous specialists, professors and doctors. Many come back on a regular basis, for instance after an organ transplant.
UKE's record of clinical trials and publications proves that the professors and doctors are part of leading scientific discussion. Treatment, research and science are surrounded by a well-defined process of medical quality in a warm, comfortable and caring environment.

UKE is the largest hospital in Northern Germany, with 80 clinics and institutes. As a teaching hospital, it carries out medical research and many doctors, scientists and students visit to work in its clinics and laboratories.
The International Office coordinates all aspects of international patients' medical care, paying special attention to their personal, cultural and travel-related needs. Doctors, nurses and administrative staff try to do everything in order to make the patient’s stay as comfortable as possible.
The Centre has approximately 1,400 hospital beds and each year it treats around 50,000 in-patients. It also treats about 250,000 out-patients as well as 50,000 emergency patients.
