Welcome to the Gemeinschaftskrankenhaus Herdecke – a unique health centre that combines the cutting-edge skills and resources of a modern emergency hospital with long years of expertise in complementary treatment and therapy.
We are glad to have you visiting. The following pages are designed to provide you with extensive information on our house’s departments, various services and latest latest developments. In addition you will be presented with a wealth of information on health and health-related issues.
In our Gemeinschaftskrankenhaus here in Herdecke we treat local patients, thereby fulfilling our mandate as an emergency hospital. However, many of our patients come from all over Germany and from abroad because they value our house’s unique atmosphere. They whish to take advantage of the therapeutic treatments that we develop from Rudolf Steiner and Ita Wegmann’s concept of Anthroposophical Medicine.
The patient’s individuality and biography are major focal points in Anthroposophical Medicine. This approach is manifested in special cures, art therapies and a distinctively humane care.
