This is how the clinic list was created

  • Many patients! At the clinics presented above, doctors have great experience with HIV/AIDS, because only hospitals that treat this disease (ICD-B20) on an at least average basis have been taken into consideration. Hospitals are obliged to inform about their medical treatment in quality reports and to provide this information to the Federal Joint Committee.
  • High Level of Patient Satisfaction!The level of patient satisfaction of the clinics in the list is at least 80 This is the result of a survey by the German health insurance companies AOK and BARMER in cooperation with the “Weisse Liste”. Every year, almost half a million of insured people are being questioned about their hospital stay.
  • Good Hygiene! Many patients suffer from an infection during their hospital stay, which is why good hospital hygiene is important. All the clinics attach above-average value to patient safety. At least 45 out of 55 measures have been taken in order to guarantee optimal hygiene before, during and after surgery.

This is just a small selection of German clinics. Of course, many other hospitals also offer a high quality of treatment.
