Together with the MedCenter, the Klinikum Siegen forms the Weidenau Health Centre which links inpatient and outpatient services in the immediate vicinity and provides care not only for patients from Siegen but also for people from the entire three-country region and beyond. 

With its 15 specialist departments the hospital is comprehensively positioned. A special focus of the range of services is on the treatment of neurological and psychiatric diseases. Almost 2.000 stroke patients are medically treated by experienced teams every year. With its certified supra-regional stroke unit the hospital has one of the largest and most important facilities of its kind in Germany.

In recent years the Klinikum Siegen has not only made extensive investments in the renovation of its buildings up to modern standard but has also ensured that patients in the region receive excellent medical care with a central emergency room, a new operating centre and new large-scale medical equipment.

In addition to medical care at the highest level, we also place great value on friendly, attentive and respectful interaction with each other. This applies to our dealings with our patients and their relatives as well as to our colleagues among each other. Equally important to us is good cooperation in a spirit of partnership with doctors in private practice, clinics, care facilities for the elderly, social services and health insurance companies. 

The sole proprietor is the district of Siegen-Wittgenstein. The chairman of the shareholders‘ meeting is Mr. Andreas Müller, head of the district authority.
