Marienhospital Gelsenkirchen is a member of the Catholic service partnership KERN Katholische Einrichtungen Ruhrgebiet Nord GmbH and a modern accident and emergency hospital, currently with a total of 568 beds. The hospital dates back to the year 1869, but we have been in our present building in Virchowstraße since 1977. For many years now, we have also been the academic teaching hospital of the University of Duisburg-Essen.
Over the course of our history, we have become the largest hospital in the city of Gelsenkirchen. Every year, we care for some 28,000 inpatients as well as another roughly 60,000 outpatients. For this, some 1,400 members of staff provide a round-the-clock service.
Day in, day out, they devote their extensive medical and nursing skills and knowledge to ensuring the well-being of patients in the following clinics and specialist units:
Important information for patients
Does your state of health render a stay in hospital necessary? Then please, first of all, contact the office of the relevant clinic or specialist unit and arrange an appointment. On the day of your scheduled admission, please go first to the gate at the main entrance, where we will take down your patient details, including your name, address, telephone number and nationality, insurance status and, where applicable, payment exemption. To find out exactly which documents you need to bring with you, please see the checklist we have put together for you: checklist.
Important information for visitors
Visits from family and friends are particularly important during a stay in hospital. They relieve the monotony of hospital routine and so promote the well-being of all patients. But please do bear in mind that you will usually share your room with other patients, so please be considerate. Consideration includes, for example, that your visitors do not all come at the same time, but spread their visits over the day, and also that the quiet time without visits between 12.30 p.m. and 2.30 p.m. is observed.
Should language barriers hinder communication with nursing staff or the attending doctors, we offer you the assistance of our staff with the relevant language skills. Please note that these staff members are not official interpreters. You will find a list of the languages spoken by our staff here: Languages.
Should you find that you urgently require certain medicines that are not part of your treatment or cannot be obtained from us, you do have the opportunity to purchase them from a pharmacy on our site.
