Six wards, a day hospital and a polyclinic of the Institute cover the entire spectrum of outpatient, part-time and internal inpatient therapy.

As part of the Asklepios Patient Safety Program, doctors take many measures so patients can rightly feel that they are in excellent and safe hands. In the clinic, qualified professionals apply mandatory hygiene standards to prevent the transmission of pathogens. Among other things, this provides that the medical centre staff disinfect their hands before each contact or examination. The clinic also conducts extensive hygiene training for all employees.
A wide range of services includes diagnosing and treating depression and anxiety disorders, burnout, stress-related diseases, psychosomatic disorders, and personality disorders.

About the city
Hamburg is the second-largest metropolis in Germany, located on the banks of the Elbe. It is one of the wealthiest cities in the country, the largest port and a real "Gateway to the World." Hamburg has been a centre of European trade since it joined the Hanseatic League in the Middle Ages. The maritime spirit and traditions of the Hanse permeate Hamburg through and through: from architecture and sights to culture, food and the cries of seagulls in the streets.
Most of the sights of Hamburg are concentrated in the central part of the city, bounded from the south by the Elbe and its channels, and from all other sides by the city ramparts. The city's symbol is a 132-meter tower called Michael, belonging to the church of St. Michael. The city is rich in its cultural heritage, which visitors can find in its museums, theatres, cathedrals and churches. Hamburg has more than 40 theatres and 50 museums of various kinds.

Many types of industries thrive in Hamburg. Among them are chemical, oil, electrical and many others. Hamburg is also home to the headquarters of many world-famous trading firms, banks, insurance and economic organizations. Hamburg is rightly called the media capital of Germany. After all, it is here that the famous publishing houses of the socio-political press "Stern" and "Spiegel" are located. Particular attention is paid to the healthcare system, so the city has much developed public and private medical institutions. For example, University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf is the largest provider of medical services in Europe and annually treats more than half a million patients.
