This is how the clinic list was created

  • Many patients! At the clinics presented above, doctors have great experience with cardiac arrhythmia (I48), because only hospitals that treat this disease on an above-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.
  • Certifications! When a clinic receives a certificate, this means that there are doctors who specialized in heart medicine and that the necessary equipment for treatment is available. All the clinics in the list have been certified as heart surgical specialist centers by the German Society for Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery (DGTH). The DGTH is the most important specialist society for heart surgery in Germany.
  • 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.
  • High Level of Patient Satisfaction! The level of patient satisfaction of the clinics in the list is at least at 90 percent. 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.

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