At the university hospital in Hamburg-Eppendorf, a new children's hospital was built in 2017. It is absolutely focussed on the needs of the small patients and shall not only convince with top level medicine, but also be a place of security and convalescence: the rooms have been designed age-based, there are private spaces for parents and the equipment is both high-quality and caring. In short, it is a clinic where one can forget his illness. Children and youths coming to the universitary hospital often suffer from complex or difficultly diagnosable diseases. Often, they are staying for several weeks. However, the UKE team wishes that they feel like home.
