Prosper Hospital Recklinghausen

Recklinghausen, Germany

According to the prestigious Focus magazine, the Prosper Hospital Recklinghausen ranks among the top medical facilities in North Rhine-Westphalia! 

The hospital enjoys the status of a modern medical complex with the highest standards of care and a long history of more than 175 years. The health facility is an academic hospital of the Ruhr University Bochum, which provides unimpeded access to medical innovations. With 530 beds, the hospital is known as the largest medical center in the region. The highly qualified doctors and nursing staff take care of patients' health. They always pay due attention to the individual needs and wishes of patients. The medical team's efforts are dedicated to ensuring that each patient receives effective treatment in a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere.

The hospital has 12 specialized departments. The key clinical focuses include gynecology, otolaryngology, urology, surgery, orthopedics, trauma surgery, gastroenterology, hematology, oncology, cardiology, pulmonology, nephrology, and radiology. Modern and proven methods, internationally recognized for their efficacy, are used during diagnostics and treatment. As for surgical treatment, doctors mostly perform sparing minimally invasive interventions, which reduce the risk of complications to zero and provide patients with the best aesthetic outcomes. Despite being minimally invasive, these operations are equally effective as traumatic open surgery.

Special emphasis is placed on cooperation with other hospitals in the region and throughout Germany. Notably, cooperation with the St. Elisabeth Hospital Herten plays an important role. A special focus is on international projects, which facilitate a productive exchange of experience and technology.

The hospital diagnoses and treats more than 17,000 inpatients every year, which indicates the impeccable reputation of the medical facility and the great credit of trust from patients. The quality of medical services is confirmed by numerous certificates, including the German Cancer Society (DKG) certification for the treatment of prostate cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer, and colon cancer, certification as the Competence Center for Hernia Repair Surgery from the German Society for General and Abdominal Surgery (DGAV), EndoCert certification as the Maximum Care Joint Replacement Surgery Center, and certification as the Trauma Center by the German Trauma Society (DGU).

Recklinghausen is a city in Germany, located in the northwest of the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia. The city is also the center of the district of the same name.

In the past, the city had the status of an important industrial center, and today it is a major cultural center, as well as a popular tourist destination. The city has several world-famous museums. In addition, Recklinghausen is famous for its Ruhrfestspielen Theatrical Festival, which has been held here annually since 1947.

Most of the historic buildings are located in downtown, which almost completely survived aerial bombardments during World War II. One of the most significant sights in the city is the Museum of Icons, which is located downtown near St. Peter's Church. It houses one of the largest icon collections outside the Orthodox world.

A walk along the Old Market Square, which is the very heart of the historical part of Recklinghausen, will also bring a lot of pleasure. The square is decorated with ancient mansions dating back to the 17th and 19th centuries, which gives it a special atmosphere of old times. It is also worth visiting the Baroque Residence Engelsburg, which was built in the form of a horseshoe. This is the most famous baroque building in the region and the most important secular building in the city. Nowadays, the residence houses a luxurious four-star hotel with a beautiful restaurant, which is distinguished by fine cuisine and excellent service.
