The hospitals (Krankenhäuser) in Dusseldorf are part of the (still) relatively well-funded German health care setup that is supported by the high taxes of the social system. Some of the shortest waiting times in Europe can be found and a level of professionalism that is often to be envied.
The hospital (Krankenhaus) linked to the university is one of the most renowned in the city. All clinics and hospitals normally have a good reputation and most are defined by a certain specialisation.
Local hospitals include Augusta, Benrath Dominikus, Elbroich Evangelische, Gerresheim, Luisen, Marien, Sankt Martinus and the University Clinic.
