15.04.2024 -  

The University Medical Center Magdeburg (UKMD) and the Pfeiffer Foundations have decided to strengthen their existing cooperation through a corporate merger. The UKMD will receive 25.5 percent of the Lostau Lung Clinic from the Pfeiffer Foundations. The aim of this intensified partnership is to shape medical care in line with the hospital reform and the hospital report of the state of Saxony-Anhalt and at the same time to bundle capacities for innovation, research, teaching and patient care.

As part of this collaboration, both organizations will ensure that patients are provided with a joint, high-quality range of care at the highest medical level in the areas of thoracic surgery, pneumology, palliative medicine, infectiology and weaning (ventilation weaning). The areas of intensive care medicine and anesthesia as well as the surgical functional area will also work more closely together.This realignment will enable both facilities to offer patients a range of services from maximum university care to specialist clinical care in coordinated treatment paths.
