There are annually treated 57,000 inpatients and 235,000 outpatients. The number of approved beds is 1430. Here function almost 30 clinical centers. The outpatient consultations are focused on the interdisciplinary cooperation. Along with the University of Würzburg, the University Hospital with more than 6,100 employees is considered as one of the largest employers in the region.
The focuses of the inpatient treatment correspond to the scientific priorities of the Faculty of Medicine. These include hematology / oncology, diseases of the cardiovascular system, nervous system, as well as immunology / infectious diseases. The neighborhood with new Centers for Operational (ZOM) and Internal Medicine (ZIM) makes a positive impact on the multidisciplinary collaboration. An example is a tight cooperation of cardiologists from the Department of Medicine 1 with cardiac surgeons of the Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery.
The Department of Medicine 1 initiated a professional community for the treatment of heart attacks in East Franconia that is of great importance for the region. This community incorporates the opportunities of medical institutions, services and emergency physicians.
