The aim of Nursing Services is to provide professional care geared towards patient well-being that not only meets high-tech standards but also reflects empathy and compassion. This requires a high level of professional expertise combined with communicative skills and a capacity for teamwork.

Nursing is a key element of patient care at the German Heart Centre Munich and is based on the very latest scientific insights. Working in seven general wards, three intensive care wards and eight departments, some 500 highly qualified specialists are responsible for meeting the needs of patients across the full age range.

Particular importance is attached to the qualified training of nurses and paediatric healthcare specialists at the German Heart Centre Munich, and for this purpose there are cooperations with five vocational training colleges for nursing and paediatric care. Training is also provided for operating room assistants and anaesthesia assistants.

The care process involves the planning, implementation and evaluation of nursing measures. The German Heart Centre Munich also pursues health promotion strategies and goals. We strive to provide the very highest-quality care, and expertise in the field of nursing science is essential here.

The German Heart Centre Munich implements clinical pathways, guidelines and care standards in the areas of paediatric and adult nursing, intensive care, anaesthesia and surgery as well as in its various departments.
