From a medical point of view, acute and rehabilitation treatments in neurology belong closely together. This is because the earlier therapy begins, the higher the chance of success of the recovery progress. The satellite ward of the Kliniken Schmieder in the Stuttgart Clinic is exemplary cooperation between the two partners. The ward acts as a department for early rehabilitation with beds for weaning from mechanical ventilation and is directly connected to the acute care department of the Katharinenhospital.
Since October 2018, patients with the most severe neurological diseases have been treated here at the largest location of the Stuttgart Clinic. The early rehabilitation station of Kliniken Schmieder is in the immediate vicinity of the Neuro Centre and, thus, to multiple departments of the maximum care hospital. Thanks to the unique cooperation model, patients can switch to early rehabilitation treatment directly and without traveling long distances.
The patients are usually admitted directly from the intensive care in the Katharinenhospital.
Medical care at the highest level, innovative therapy strategies, and humanity as the central focus of treatment are the foundations of a tailor-made, individual treatment strategy at Kliniken Schmieder. As quality leaders, we shape medical-therapeutic standards and continuously develop them further with our research institute. Our goal is to give our patients a new quality of life. We do our best for this.
