About University Hospital Heidelberg

More than six hundred years ago, the first German university was founded in Heidelberg. Today, it attracts international acclaim for its life sciences – especially for medicine. As one of Europe’s largest and most modern medical centers, Heidelberg University Hospital’s more than 50 specialist departments offer medical care of the highest international standards in all areas of specialty with a focus on oncology care and on other diseases that require complex treatments. Heidelberg University Hospital’s active collaboration with national research facilities attracts patients from many countries worldwide.

The National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) Heidelberg is a joint institution of the German Cancer Research Center, Heidelberg University Hospital (UKHD) and German Cancer Aid. The National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) is a leading oncological center of excellence, where specialists of various medical fields work together under one roof to find the optimal course of treatment for each cancer patient. A good 100 years ago, Vincenz Czerny founded a cancer research institute in Heidelberg. In 1964, this became the renowned German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ). Today, the close collaboration between Heidelberg University Hospital and the German Cancer Research Center in research and patient care at the National Center for Tumor Diseases ensures that new therapeutic approaches are developed and rapidly put into practice.

Surgical oncology as well as radio-oncology are integral parts in cancer treatment as well. Heidelberg physicians work with state-of-the-art equipment (including robot-assisted surgery) and are highly experienced. For example, the European Pancreas Center at Heidelberg University Hospital is one of the world's leading centers for pancreatic cancer.

The Heidelberg Ion Beam Therapy Centre (HIT), a unique facility in Europe, is the first in Europe to use both protons and heavy ions. Children and patients with certain tumors of the prostate, lungs and liver can be effectively treated here. This new form of radiation can for the first time benefit a larger number of patients with previously incurable tumors.
