Clinic Josephinum

Because the physicians in our practice are also able to place and care for their patients in the hospital Clinic Josephinum,  we are able to provide in-patient treatment for internistic andgastroenterological  diseases, when out-patient treatment is not sufficient. The Clinic Josephinum provides hospital beds for patients with both public and private insurance. For short term in-patient diagnostics our close and easy access to hospital beds has also proven of great value.

The interlocking of our practice with the hospital also enables us to provide certain endoscopic procedures (for instance the removal of larger intestinal polyps) on an initially out-patient basis and only to admit the patient to the hospital should the necessity for observation occur.

The  location of our practice within the hospital assures the continuous care of our in-patients by the group practice Dres. Völker, Alcock, Hesse and Wallisch.  Furthermore a team of qualified on-call physicians and the hospital nursing staff is available 24 hours a day.

The infrastructure that exists within the Clinic Josephinum with the laboratory, CT, MRI and digital x-ray, the intensive care unit, the operating theater, the recovery room, ECG, physical therapy and nutritional department as well as the other resident specialist departments (surgery, anesthesiology, oncology, cardiology, ENT, orthopedics, radiology) ensures comprehensive care customized to the needs of the individual patient.
