This data is published at regular intervals, making the performance at our hospitals verifiable and clear to every patient. Patients and employees alike benefit from this transparency in Helios hospitals. The hospital group offers premium-quality medicine with state-of-the-art diagnostics and treatment procedures at all of its sites. Clinical research within the company is coordinated and supported by the Helios Research Center.
