Up-to-date, transparent, neutral: the German Hospital Directory

  • as an information portal on hospitals for patients and relatives
  • as a point of guidance amidst the many different offers and individual services provided by hospitals
  • as a source of basic information for confidence-instilling doctor-patient consultations as patients and relatives have many questions and wishes when facing a hospital stay

The German Hospital Directory offers you flexible opportunities to use the comprehensive search functions to find and compare suitable hospitals in your region. The importance of hospitals in our healthcare system is indisputable. The public expects the healthcare system to be as transparent as possible. The German Hospital Directory provides patients and relatives with clear information about the medical quality and services provided by the hospitals. The information portal is independent and advertising free.


Due to their outstanding service level, German hospitals also enjoy an excellent reputation in other countries. The international demand for hospital services is constantly rising. The German Hospital Directory offers an English version to provide information about the range of hospitals available in the country to both non-German-speaking citizens within Germany and to international patients.

Modern and innovative

The hospital care is characterized by constant progress and change. To optimally meet the public’s expectations for a modern information portal, the German Hospital Directory is continuously developed and updated.

Data basis

Unlike other information portals, the German Hospital Directory offers hospitals the opportunity to update certain data at any time. This means that users benefit from the latest available nationwide hospital data.
