The University Clinic of Giessen und Marburg (UKGM) is the third-largest university hospital in Germany. It offers medical care, modern diagnostics and holistic therapies of the highest international level of quality.
The University Clinic of Giessen and Marburg provides first-class medical treatment, promoting modern, innovative and independent medical approaches. As a maximum-care hospital, it covers the entire spectrum of modern medicine – from ophthalmology and trauma surgery to dental medicine and everything in between.
The RHÖN-KLINIKUM AG has been responsible for the running of the hospital – the first privatised university clinic in Germany – since February 2006. More than € 600 million of capital have been invested in the clinic in that time. The direct collaboration with the two Hessian universities sets this hospital group apart from other providers of healthcare.
As part of the Germany-wide hospital network of the RHÖN-KLINIKUM AG, the University Clinic of Giessen and Marburg promotes knowledge transfer to other local medical institutions. All clinics of the RHÖN-KLINIKUM AG profit from these active co-operations, as do their patients, importantly.
What we stand for
The most important tasks of a university clinic – aside from patient care – are research and education. The University Clinic of Giessen and Marburg takes these responsibilities very seriously, actively supporting the research work conducted by the medical faculties of Justus Liebig University of Giessen and Philipps University of Marburg. Numerous successful projects have been carried out in collaboration with various industry representations with the aim of developing products and services that, in the end, will improve patient therapy and quality of life.
The Marburg Ion Beam Therapy Centre (MIT) – one of only three such centres in all of Europe – has been treating cancer patients with particle radiation since October 2015. This state-of-the-art form of radiotherapy is an important component of today’s oncological treatment options and a key factor in cancer research. The method is highly effective and offers patients with hard-to-treat tumours new therapy opportunities. The centre is run by the University Clinic of Giessen and Marburg (Status of information: June 2018).
