Children are not simply small adults – they require very individual and specialized medical treatment. From neonatal care and paediatric surgery to neurology and paediatric psychosomatic therapy, modern paediatric medicine encompasses treatment of all medical conditions which occur during childhood and adolescence. Specialized doctors work together on an interdisciplinary basis to link all the different paediatric indications and thus achieve the best possible outcome for these young patients.
Numerous hospitals in Hamburg have paediatric departments. As one of Germany’s largest children’s hospitals, the Altonaer Kinderkrankenhaus specializes solely in paediatric care and cooperates closely with the Universitätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf. Every year, 11,000 children are treated here as inpatients and a further 45,000 as outpatients – some of them suffering from very rare and serious medical conditions. Parents can also be admitted, allowing them to remain with their children.
Our hospital offers the latest technologies and best possible patient care around the clock.
