Helios Hospital Krefeld

General Info

Helios Hospital Krefeld, Helios St. Josefshospital Uerdingen and Helios Cäcilien-Hospital Hüls are operating as one hospital under the umbrella of Helios Hospital Krefeld GmbH since January 2023. In terms of the number of inpatients, Krefeld thus currently has the largest hospital in North Rhine-Westphalia.

With the clear goal of tailoring treatment concepts even more precisely to patients than before, many small, joint steps of change added up to form a large whole: one hospital, three sites, one team. The vision of an integrated overall hospital is closely linked to targeted medical specialization, which takes into account the high demands of increasing complexity of treatment, as well as individual patient needs. Helios hospital Krefeld has the status of an academic hospital of the Rhine-Westphalian University of Aachen — it is one of the 9 best technical universities in Germany with a strong biomedical specialization. According to Focus magazine, which makes a list of the best hospitals in Germany annually, Helios in Krefeld is listed in the top clinics for 2020. The clinic's team specializes in the treatment of oncology, strokes, vascular and spinal surgeries and operations on the biliary tract. 5 departments of the clinic have the status of a certified cancer center.

Amongst the other specialty areas, the hospital's team specializes in oncology using minimally invasive surgery — up to 97% of operations are performed using the laparoscopic method. In 2018, the clinic achieved a zero mortality rate when removing the colon invaded by cancer. Successfully completed 98% of partial lung removal operations on patients with oncology, a recovery rate 96% of patients with heart failure. 223 of 225 vascular operations were successfully completed (including complex operations, such as open surgery on abdominal aortic aneurysm), as well as 415 of 417 urological operations, including removal of bladder, kidneys and prostate. The clinic has 450 doctors and 670 caretakers in total.

The formation of focal points enables a clear focus on diagnostic and treatment quality. With the Center for Obesity and Metabolic Therapy (ZAM), the Center for Reconstructive Urological Surgery, Andrology, the Sports Clinic, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Endoprosthetics of the knee and hip joint including subsequent rehabilitation from a single source, in short the Ortho-Campus as well as Complementary Oncology (TimO), Uerdingen and Hüls also now have highly specialized, supraregional centers of excellence.

The "Ortho-Campus" in Hülsas part of Helios Hospital Krefeld offers joint replacement and rehabilitation under one roof. There is no need anymore to switch between the hospital, where the surgery is carried out, and a rehabilitation center. The same surgeon and medical team accompany the patient throughout his/her whole process: from the first consultation and taking the decision for surgery, during the surgery and even into rehabilitation.

Helios Hospital Krefeld


Krefeld, the clinic's location, is a small historical town on the banks of the Rhine. Düsseldorf Airport, which is connected by direct flights with Moscow and St. Petersburg, is only 25 kilometers away from the clinic in Krefeld and can be reached in exactly half an hour. At first, in 1845, a hospital was founded there, which is now known as a clinic. From the beginning of the 20th century it was operating as a surgical clinic, and then as clinic for skin diseases. After the war, the hospital was rebuilt several times, and since 2007 it belongs to the Helios clinic network. In 2014, the company redesigned it completely and now a modern multifunctional center has been opened to patients: a spacious and bright building with glass facades, convenient navigation and eco-friendly materials help patients to recover faster.
