United for Health
The Asklepios Principle
Asklepios has established a clear maxim for their work: “United for Health”. After all, health is a concern for all of us and it can only be created, maintained and restored by working together.
Our corporate activity is geared towards forward-looking medicine of the highest quality for all patients entrusted to our care. Medical care at the basic level is just as significant a part of the hospital care structure as that at the top, and indeed throughout the entire chain of treatment. The continual development of our medical services is further supported through clinical research. Using the latest knowledge management tools, we also ensure that the more recent scientific findings are circulated knowledge is disseminated throughout our hospitals.
People form the focus of the Asklepios philosophy: even in the most cutting-edge medical care, personal attention is the key to regaining your health and each patient should therefore receive the best personal care possible. This principle also applies to our staff: their identification and satisfaction with their work is our priority. We accomplish this with an atmosphere of transparency and respect, which also accommodates personal requirements and support. A high degree of individual responsibility as a result of decentralisation, short decision-making processes and an “open door” policy contribute to this, as does our comprehensive range of instruction, training and further education opportunities.
We are committed to our role as a socially-conscientious company. With their public care commitment, our hospitals are realising an important duty of the utmost responsibility. For this reason, Asklepios adheres to the highest principles of integrity as the benchmark for all of our actions, both internal and external. As a family business, Asklepios pursues long-term business goals. Rather than paying dividends, all profits generated are reinvested within the company. Our commitment to health promotion among school pupils in as many of our locations as possible exemplifies our commitment to taking on social responsibility.
