The Clinic belongs to the Kplus group – network of catholic hospitals and facilities for the elderly.

Therefore, the Hospital attaches great importance to the education of the medical and nursing staff and offers a large variety of basic, further and advanced courses within the Kpus network.
The Hospital provides the high-quality medical care, approved by the recognized certificates according to the latest standards. For instance, the Department of Surgery is the Competence and Reference Center for minimally invasive surgery certified by the surgical working group for minimally invasive surgery (CAMIC).
