Answers to your questions

Information from A to Z

Departure/discharge

Outpatient rehabilitation

Under certain conditions, rehabilitation treatment can also be carried out on an outpatient/day patient basis. This means that you sleep at home but come to our hospital or outpatient facilities that cooperate with us for several hours during the day for treatment. A quiet room is available to you for quiet periods between the individual treatments. You can also have lunch with us. You travel from your home to the hospital each day. This requires a sufficient level of mobility on your part and the journey time should be no longer than 45 minutes. Certain requirements must also be fulfilled on the part of the payer. If you are interested, please contact our staff in Patient Services or your ward doctor.
