About the hospital

Vivantes Hospital Wenckebach Berlin-Tempelhof is a highly specialized medical institution that provides medical care to the highest standards. The current clinic Wenckebach, named after the Dutch cardiologist Karel Frederik Wenckebach, was built in 1875–1878 as the "Royal II. Berlin Garrison Hospital" designed by the architect Martin Gropius, who became a model for the creation of hospitals. Today the hospital is located in an idyllic park. The clinic is characterized by medical quality, friendliness and respect.

The Vivantes Wenckebach in Tempelhof-Schoneberg is a basic and standard hospital with 443 beds. Every year medical team treats about 21,000 patients, more than half of them on an outpatient basis. The hospital has eight specialized departments and one centre. The clinic also houses the Vivantes Hospice for comprehensive care for terminally ill people.

The Vivantes Wenckebach Clinic is an academic teaching hospital of the Charite - University of Medicine Berlin and is actively involved in research activity and teaching. In the cardiology department of the clinic, doctors can examine and treat heart rhythm disorders. The hospital has a cardiac catheter laboratory with rhythmology, and gastroenterology has all the facilities for interventional endoscopy. Thus, diagnosis and therapy can be carried out in one step. The medical team works on an interdisciplinary basis to guarantee patients the best comprehensive medical care. An integral part of the location is also Vivantes' Institute of Further Education and Training, which provides regular continuing education for doctors and nurses.

The Wenckebach Clinic is a so-called emergency hospital with an intensive care unit. The medical team works for patients around the clock and every day of the year for all medical emergencies. Doctors provide the best care in medical departments - from cardiology to general and visceral surgery, from traumatology and orthopaedics to psychiatry and geriatrics. Experienced doctors and a team of specially trained nurses treat and care for patients passionately and competently.

What services are available at Vivantes Hospital Wenckebach Berlin-Tempelhof?

The clinic provides various medical services, including treatment in gastroenterology, endocrinology and pulmonology, orthopaedic and traumatological medicine and surgery (open, minimally invasive laparoscopic interventions) with high-precision diagnostics of the most common diseases.

Is the medical centre advanced in cardiac surgical treatment?

The rapid development of minimally invasive procedures in the hospital has made treatment more delicate, which is critical for elderly patients. For example, non-surgical aortic valve replacement (TAVI) or mitral valve treatment with the MitraClip significantly reduced the risk of complications.

Can I treat a complex case of osteochondrosis in the clinic?

The medical centre treats cartilage defects, such as dissecting osteochondrosis (dying of small surface parts of cartilage and bones). For this, a cell-free system of cartilage regeneration is used: the defective area is filled with a unique material that supports forming new cartilage-like tissue.

Can I get psychiatric help at the hospital?

Emergency psychiatric care in the clinic is provided around the clock. Professionals use a variety of therapies, including CBASP for chronic depression, DBT for borderline personality disorder, and pleasure learning. Also, psychopedagogy for schizophrenic psychosis and metacognitive training are available.
