The Ernst von Bergmann Hospital in the city of Potsdam is a forward-looking tertiary care facility ranked among the largest health providers in the Berlin/Brandenburg Metropolitan Region. With 29 medical departments and 1,178 beds, this hospital provides a broad range of health care services. Every year, about 2,000 babies are born in the maternity unit, 48,000 people are treated in accident and emergency services and 39,500 inpatients receive innovative state-of-the-art medical care. The Ernst von Bergmann Hospital Potsdam, a university teaching hospital of the Charité in Berlin, is one of the region’s largest employers with a staff of more than 2,000, including 474 doctors and 874 nurses.
Interdisciplinary cooperation between the expert physicians has major priority – evident, for example in certified centres such as the Breast Centre, the Gastro-Intestinal Centre or the dedicated Stroke Unit.
Potsdam directly borders Berlin’s popular south-west districts of Wannsee, Zehlendorf and Grunewald, and has excellent links to Berlin via the urban railway (S-Bahn) network.
