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.
