Our hospital has many years of experience in treating international patients. Due to the fact of Hannover being an important site for fairs world-wide, each year patients from many different countries come to us who have learned about our good performance in medical treatment through e.g. foreign visitors to the fairs. Furthermore, some of our heads of department enjoy international reputation because of their medical spectrum, thus drawing the attention of an increasing number of foreign patients to our hospital, who want to be treated by them (Please also see the attached presentation of the three hospitals).

Due to our great experience in medical treatment of international patients, our staff most naturally consider cultural and religious wishes and desires of our patients during their stay in our hospital. In addition, there normally do not exist any language barriers, because most of our staff are English-speaking. In this regard we would like to mention that all of the direction signs in our hospital are also lettered in English.
