About the clinic

University Hospital Vienna (AKH) is one of Europe's oldest and largest multidisciplinary extensive research centers, with a 300-year history. The hospital was founded by Emperor Leopold I in 1693 as the "House for the poor and invalids". Subsequently, the building was reformatted into the "General Hospital" in 1784. The university clinic was officially opened in 1994 after all the modernizations and changes as a high-tech, world-renowned center. A lovely clinic has gardens, cafes, and shops among historical monuments and graceful architecture. Furthermore, the hospital was recently chosen as the central motif for the 50-euro commemorative coin. The facility comprises 25 university clinics, 39 departments, 15 intensive care units, 21 intensive care units, 50 high-tech operating units, and a specialized oncology center. The hospital is the fifth in Europe in the number of employees and beds and serves 1,742 beds, approximately 1. 5 million outpatients, and more than 100,000 inpatients worldwide.   AKH cooperates with the famous Medical University of Vienna and is a member of the "European University Hospital Alliance," an association of the nine most essential university hospitals in Europe. Doctors are involved in innovative developments in immunology, oncology, neuroscience, cardiology, and diagnostic imaging.  One of the scientific and medical achievements of the clinic is the oncology center, which annually serves more than 7,500 patients from all over the world. Patients always have access to innovative drugs and improved treatment technologies: radiation therapy under visual control, modulated intensity, hypofractionated stereotactic, and selective internal radiation therapy. These new methods help reduce the number of complications and relapses and promote rapid rehabilitation and almost 100% success. The neurosurgery department has been operating for more than 25 years, with 2,000 operations and research annually with the help of advanced CT, MRI, and PET equipment. Such popularity ensures continuous development and experience for doctors because everyone performs the required minimum number of operations per year. The ISO certificate confirms the high service quality.  The medical center also owns one of Europe's largest radiation oncology departments.  The department is the primary driver and author of the guidelines of the European Society of Radiotherapy and Oncology and the coordinator of the EMBRACE study, a multicenter study on cervical cancer diagnosis. The famous "3D imaging in oncology" seminar is also held in the clinic. University Hospital in Vienna offers assistance in an extensive range of medical services: aesthetic surgery, pulmonology and otolaryngology, ophthalmology, immunology, neurology, endocrinology and dermatology, gastroenterology, gynecology and obstetrics, rheumatology, orthopedics, cardiology, dentistry, pediatrics, and many others. Considering the hospital's scientific potential, it employs talented and unique doctors who drive world medicine and ensure predictable positive treatment results in a cozy atmosphere.
