Why to choose Germany for your medical journey

“MADE IN GERMANY” is still a worldwide acknowledged quality attribute, not only with regards to manufacturing or construction technology. Germany enjoys also an outstanding reputation when it comes to treating patients from all over the globe. Many patients from abroad choose to place themselves in the hands of the country's best medical experts, because they are working within one of the most innovative, advanced and best healthcare systems worldwide. Even heads of state and other VIP’s see distinguished German specialists about their personal health issues.

Unparalleled cooperation between science, research, industry and hospitals at a regional and national level has given Germany some of the highest standards of medical care in the world. This is complemented by an outstanding preventive and rehabilitation medicine. That’s why tens of thousands of patients travel to Germany every year for inpatient treatment – and even a much higher number for outpatient care.

With more than 30 university hospitals, around 1,000 public-sector and not-for-profit hospitals and nearly 600 hospitals belonging to private groups, the German stationary healthcare sector offers the entire range of medical treatments – up to the highest level of care. Doctors with outstanding qualifications, highly specialized nursing staff, excellent diagnostic facilities and a superb medical infrastructure constitute the international acknowledged Medical Excellence of Germany. Since this excellence is also increasingly accessible for patients from abroad, Germany developed to a top destination for medical tourists over the last years.


As the medical tourism is an upcoming and attractive market segment, more and more German hospitals focus specifically on international patients and offer services dedicated to patients from abroad. But not every facility which claims to offer the most modern therapies or state-of-the-art diagnostics is reputable or familiar with the handling of foreign patients. Besides the quality of medical care, the observance of cultural, social and religious aspects has an important impact on the wellbeing of patients from abroad.

But how can you as a patient verify from a distance, if a clinic or medical center is really suitable for your specific case?

How can you ensure to find the best-matching expert for your personal health problem within the sometimes intransparent and diversified jungle of offerings from thousands of medical care providers?

And how can you assure, that your medical journey to Germany will be truly convenient, professionally organized and last but not least successful at the end?
