The Albertinen-Diakoniewerk is the largest diaconal hospital operator in Hamburg. It was founded in 1907 by Albertine Assor, a Baptist Reverend Mother. The facilities run by the Albertinen Group include two hospitals, several care facilities and sheltered housing for the elderly, as well as a hospice. Every year, more than 80,000 patients receive inpatient and outpatient care in the facilities of the Albertinen Group.
Our goal is to help people by providing first class medicine, professional care and personal attention – in keeping with our Christian belief that we should treat others as we would wish to be treated ourselves.
The largest hospital of the Albertinen Group, the Albertinen-Krankenhaus, is a university teaching hospital of the University of Hamburg and is repeatedly found to be one of the most popular hospitals in Germany in patient surveys conducted by a large German health insurance company. It has 613 beds and treats around 60,000 inpatients and outpatients every year. Areas of specialization at the hospital are cardiovascular medicine, tumour medicine, gastroenterology and hepatology, orthopaedics, gynaecology and obstetrics, and geriatric medicine. Other specialist departments encompass surgery, neurology, urology, psychiatry and psychotherapy. The hospital takes part in the statutory external quality control system.
