Heart Center Leipzig
Since the very first day of its existence, the Leipzig Heart Center has been a leader in Germany and Europe, in both medical science and practice of medicine. Multidisciplinary approach is of high priority for the clinic. So, every patient is examined not by one doctor but by a so called Heart Team that includes cardiologists, heart surgeons, and arrhythmology experts. The Leipzig Heart Institute is part of the clinic. It works on new treatment methods and research projects, and produces publications that inform international cardiac intervention standards. In 2018 alone, it published over 200 research articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals. While the clinic works on most challenging cases, its success rates are consistently above both the European baseline standards and German averages: 70% of heart surgeries are minimally invasive, and 2019, 93.1% of the patients with the main diagnosis myocardial infarction recovered at the Helios Heart Center Leipzig, while the average rate in Germany is 91.5%. This year the clinic also achieved a 0.0% mortality rate for aortic valve replacement.
The Heart Center Leipzig – High-end medicine for the heart
The city of Leipzig can look back on centuries of tradition in the field of academic medical research and teaching. Since September 1994, this tradition has been continued responsibly and extensively at the Heart Center Leipzig. The basis for this is a cooperation and lease agreement between Herzzentrum Leipzig GmbH, the University of Leipzig and the Free State of Saxony. Since February 2014, the Heart Center Leipzig has been part of the Helios Hospital Group.
During the Heart Center's more than 20 years of existence, medicine of the highest international level has been established. The Heart Center Leipzig played a major role in developing many innovative treatment methods for heart disease, such as minimally invasive cardiac valve surgery, catheter-based valve replacement or paediatric heart surgery, which are now used as a standard throughout the world.
Today, more than 1,450 staff members work at the Heart Center Leipzig under the direction of experienced physicians and renowned scientists. They provide pre-inpatient, inpatient and outpatient care to a total of nearly 44,000 patients annually. The range of services offered by the Heart Center Leipzig comprises the diagnosis and treatment of all diseases of the cardiovascular system.
In keeping with the mission of providing best possible individual care to patients, the close collaboration of all specialist departments provides affected adults and children with new therapeutic perspectives as well as maximum safety and quality.
In addition to first-rate medical and nursing care, the Heart Center also has more to offer in terms of service and makes the hospital stay personal and individual, enabling our patients to feel comfortable and quickly recover in a pleasant atmosphere. To this end, there is a special optional service concept comprising comfortable accommodation and a multitude of additional services.
