Each year we perform more than 2,500 operations using the heart-lung machine and over 2,000 other operations on the heart and blood vessels. Among these, around 100 operations are heart and/or lung transplantation and 500 are heart operations in prematurely born babies, newborns, infants and children.
In addition, about 2,000 diagnostic and more than 1,800 invasive procedures (heart catheterization) are carried out in patients with congenital and aquired heart disease. Further, 350 electrophysiological examinations, 400 pacemaker implantations and 250 AICD (automatic implantable cardioverter-debrillator) implantations are performed.
Each year more than 6,500 individuals are treated as inpatients and 14,000 outpatients come to the DHZB for treatment.
The DHZB has 164 beds, 50 of them for intensive care. A further 150 beds are available at the Paulinen Hospital, the associated after-care center.
In the Paulinen Hospital there are 15 beds in a private ward known as "Andalucia", which is run in the style of a hotel.

We employ 1100 people as doctors (approx. 190), nurses (approx. 470) and administrative, technical and other personnel.

The DHZB has a cooperative partnership with the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin.
Since 2002 the DHZB has been certified by KTQ, "Cooperation for Quality and Transparency in Health Care." This is a national quality control procedure for hospitals, whereby external inspectors assess all aspects of health care institutions. The KTQ certification documents the high quality standards of our hospital.
