Pooling resources – for a pediatric high-performance center

The INITIATIVE für Unsere Kinder- und Jugendklinik Freiburg is promoting the construction of a new pediatric high-performance center that will unite the resources of the Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine at the Medical Center – University of Freiburg, the Pediatric Department of St. Josef’s Hospital and the emergency headquarters of SHI pediatricians.

The new Freiburg model will be unique and exemplary on a supra-regional scale. We are presenting the concept of a pediatric clinic of the 21st century fostering health, recovery and development far beyond simple medical care. Covering emergency treatment as well as out-patient care and in-patient stays, from the premature baby up to the young adolescent. In patient-oriented and health-promoting spaces, within interlinked social and psychosocial facilities, embedded in interpersonally and economically reasonable structures. Its location will be behind the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology alongside the Breisacher Straße.

We are demonstrating INITIATIVE
Patient orientation is not a luxury but a mandate of medical care
