Philips and Klinikum Stuttgart hospital sign 10-year innovation partnership agreement

In order to provide first-class healthcare over the long term, Klinikum Stuttgart has initiated a far-reaching restructuring process that includes investment in new buildings and modern equipment. One of its trend-setting measures is construction of the new Katharinenhospital in Stuttgart. The first phase of construction, which is expected to be completed by the end of next year, will see technically demanding disciplines such as radiology, interventional neuroradiology, intensive care and endovascular surgery housed in brand new buildings. In addition to the installation of state-of-the-art medical equipment, the implementation of networked care and the improvement of processes are other important goals.

'We have excellent clinicians and strong care delivery. With Philips, we now have a strong partner with a reputation for innovation leadership in medical technology and healthcare IT,' said Prof. Jan Steffen Jürgensen, Medical Director of the Klinikum Stuttgart. 'With our combined expertise, we want to further improve our clinical processes and the safety of treatment for the more than 700,000 patients treated at the Klinikum Stuttgart every year.'
