The center is one of the leading medical facilities specializing in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes mellitus at the international level. About 37,000 patients are treated here every year, while approximately 14,700 of them receive inpatient medical care. The highly qualified specialists at the center perform about 6,400 heart surgeries and about 10,000 cardiac catheter-based examinations, as well as about 800 electrophysiological studies, and provide medical care to more than 1,000 patients with congenital heart defects annually. The doctors are justifiably proud of their unique clinical experience and successful treatment outcomes, which contribute to the excellent reputation of the medical center in Europe.

The center has been a university hospital at Ruhr University Bochum since 1989. The center's staff takes an active part in research activities and the training of medical students. The scientific knowledge that specialists receive in the in-house Clinical Research and Development Center is used to continuously improve treatment outcomes.

The high-tech infrastructure of the center deserves special attention.

The medical facility uses innovative diagnostic tests, such as MRI and PET-CT scans, surgical techniques, and conservative therapy methods. The quality of all services provided meets the latest standards of international medicine.

At the center of all the efforts of medical workers is a person with their own needs and personal experiences. The involvement of the patient's family and other close people in this process is an important part of the treatment. This concept has become the key to the hospital's success and recognition.

The center is recognized as one of the best in the European medical arena in the field of diagnostics and treatment of arterial hypertension (certification from the European Society of Hypertension), is included in the list of medical facilities of the German Diabetes Society, and is certified as the Adult Congenital Heart Disease Center (EMAH certification).
