The WKK: State-of-the-art medicine – right by the seaside

The Westküstenkliniken are a modern hospital with central priority care responsibility and a high level of specialisation and innovation. At our 23 houses and institutes located in Brunsbüttel und Heide we are able to provide inpatient care for 31,000 patients and ambulatory care for 38,000 patients per year.

With our 773 beds, we are Schleswig Holstein’s third largest hospital company and the most significant hospital on the west coast.

Caring for the community – our emergency services

For the people of Western Schleswig-Holstein as well on its islands and holms, our emergency care provides fast services wherever needed. Our house is reached within minutes by the rescue helicopter via the modern landing pad. With our certified trauma unit, highly capable stroke unit, neuro-surgery, cardiac catheterization lab and perinatal centre with the highest priority care responsibility, we are prepared to take in, and provide optimal care for all emergency patients.

Ahead of the curve – our integrated medical care unit

When it comes to caring for our patients, our approach is driven by innovation. We have garnered nationwide attention by transforming our hospital at the major industrial hub Brunsbuettel into an integrated medical care unit. We combine the capability of a highly efficient hospital with the skills of independent physiscians. In concert with a closely knit telemedical linkage between our house and the Heide hospital we are able to ensure for our local patients premium medical care in the long term.

Dedicated to the future – academic teaching facility

The Westküstenkliniken serve as an academic teaching facility for the universities of Kiel, Lübeck and Hamburg
