"We stand for innovation and excellence in treatment."
To enable the development of innovative patient care solutions, we have created corporate framework conditions that not only provide the scope for innovations but also promote them. In 2014, we therefore established the Medical Board, whose members consist of top medical experts from all of our company's locations, and combines academic with non-academic medicine. It advises and supports the Board of Management and our clinic directors when it comes to the assessment and practical implementation of medical innovations, new therapy methods and the installation of complex medical equipment. In addition, it provides support and advice to those responsible for the further development of our facilities.
Under supervision of the Medical Board, RHÖN‐KLINIKUM AG is also specifically improving its competitive situation through treatment innovations and cutting-edge medicine with the aid of a significantly increased research budget. With a funding pool, our company currently supports a total of 61 projects that focus on the subjects of "research and innovation" and "excellence in treatment and network medicine". This research and innovation programme includes projects at all of our company's locations; the selected projects were chosen from a number of project ideas submitted in the course of a group-wide competition.
