Further Institutions Interdisciplinary Emergency Department (INA)

We offer an interdisciplinary emergency treatment of surgical and internal disease patterns from one source at our Interdisciplinary Emergency Department. Our own team of doctors and nurses works hand in hand to treat every case of emergency quickly and efficiently all around the clock. The INA is located directly at the main entrance of Katharinenhospital, on 60, Kriegsbergstraße.

We work according to the first-view-concept: The surgical and internal senior physician attend here each patient together. The goal is to quickly reach a diagnosis and to forward the patient to the appropriate department. The INA has an emergency room, where, if necessary, patient’s therapy will be initiated. There is a clear responsibility and accountability throughout the stay in the INA, without distribution of responsibilities and unnecessary patient routes.
