Overview

At the Sana Hospital in Radevormwald, over 100 nurses with a wide range of qualifications take care of the patients. With more than 9,200 nursing professionals, a further 3,300 people in functional services, and nursing in the 52 hospitals that Sana runs nationwide represents the largest professional group within the group. In total, more than 2.2 million people are treated in the hospitals. The care of the Sana stands for a technically competent, evidence-based, human-oriented comprehensive care of the patients. Therefore, in addition to professional competence, human closeness and empathy play an important role at Sana. All employees have access to a wide range of training and further education opportunities specific to and across locations. The cornerstone of the Sana Hospital in Radevormwald was laid in 1893. Although the city of Radevormwald already had 9,000 inhabitants around 1888, there was no local hospital. As the population grew, so did the need for hospital beds. The Kaiser Wilhelm Foundation, which initially had 25 beds, was no longer sufficient. In 1945, the city administration decided to set up a modern hospital with 100 beds. The foundation stone was laid on July 18, 1947. With the currency reform, the implementation of the plan seemed to fail, and the city administration was desperately looking for a new sponsor. In this emergency, negotiations were started with the Order of St. John, which took over the hospital from 1955. In mid-2012, the house was taken over by Sana Kliniken AG. As a high-performance basic care hospital, the hospital ensures inpatient basic medical care and emergency care for the population in Radevormwald. The Sana Hospital in Radevormwald joined the Sana Kliniken AG hospital group in June 2012 and benefits from the know-how and economic advantages of the strong hospital group. In order to do justice to this demanding task, the house relies on innovative medicine based on the latest standards, modern medical-technical equipment and highly qualified, committed employees. SANA HOSPITAL RADEVORMWALD CLINICS GENERAL, VISCERAL AND MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY VISCERAL AND GENERAL SURGERY In visceral surgery, they primarily deal with the digestive organs. These are primarily the gastrointestinal tract, liver, gallbladder and pancreas. Endocrine surgery – i.e. surgery on the adrenal glands – is also one of their core competencies. They carry out numerous visceral surgical procedures minimally invasively. For example, they can now remove the gallbladder or appendix without major abdominal incisions. AMBULATORY OPERATIONS At the Sana Hospital in Radevormwald, they offer numerous outpatient procedures. The advantage: You can quickly return to your familiar surroundings, but you can also use all the facilities of a modern hospital if necessary. On the day of the operation, you are advise to report to the patient admissions department on an empty stomach at the agreed time, from where you will be accompanied to the operating room. Regardless of whether their doctors perform the outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or with local anaesthesia, for your own safety they will not release you before two hours after the end of the operation. During this time, you will see your surgeon and anesthesiologist. Both will inform you about the course of the operation and give you the discharge letter for your doctor who will be treating you further. Your companion can then take you home. If, in individual cases, an inpatient stay is necessary after the operation - for example if you have circulatory problems - they can also admit you as an inpatient and monitor you. GERIATRIC SURGERY The treatment of diseases in old age poses considerable challenges for surgeons. It is essential that the disease is treated promptly with the least possible effort so that early mobilization in cooperation with the department for acute geriatrics can ideally begin immediately after the operation. The concomitant diseases, which are not uncommon in old age, require very experienced surgeons and the least possible surgical trauma. In some cases, a preoperative presentation is advantageous. Timely transfer to the in-house department for acute geriatrics and early rehabilitation shortens the length of stay and often achieves a better overall functional result. INTESTINAL CENTER "BERGISCHES LAND" Since the end of 2009, patients at the Sana Hospital in Radevormwald have benefited from the Bergisches Land Intestinal Center. Specialists from the hospital and specialized practices in Remscheid and Radevormwald work hand in hand here. At regular tumor conferences, for example, they discuss which therapy is best for the individual patient and document this. In this way, the intestinal center guarantees interdisciplinary coordination, regardless of whether the examinations and treatments take place as inpatients in the hospital or as outpatients in Radevormwald or Remscheid. The aim of the intestinal center is a guideline-based, high-quality and patient-friendly therapy for all malignant intestinal diseases. Intestinal centers must meet various requirements. They have extensive experience in operations on the large and small intestine, colonoscopies, polyp removal (colon polyps are precursors to cancer), chemotherapy (before and after the operation) and radiation. The following disciplines work at the Bergisches Land Intestinal Center: • Resident and clinical gastroenterologists - in practice and clinic • Pathologists for the histological microscopic diagnosis before, during and after operations • chemotherapy specialists • Surgeons with expertise in oncological surgery of colon and rectum diseases HERNIA CENTER "BERGISCHES LAND" A specialization of the Department of General and Visceral Surgery is hernia surgery, i.e. the treatment of fractures in the abdominal wall and groin. They offer the entire spectrum of all established surgical procedures. If possible, they also perform these operations minimally invasively. When choosing the surgical procedure, not only the type, location and size of the fracture and the general condition of the patient play a role, but also individual wishes and needs. They take part in a quality assurance study with the data from their hernia operations so that they can transparently present the quality of the operation results. ACUTE GERIATRICS AND EARLY REHABILITATION The geriatric department has 60 beds and opens up a wide range of medical services to the approximately 1,000 geriatric patients who are cared for every year - from a femoral neck fracture to a stroke, they can rest assured that they are being well cared for. The employees of the department attach particular importance to caring support. Precisely because geriatric patients often have to be treated as inpatients for 14 days or longer, an atmosphere should be created on the ward in which - despite illness and pain - a lot of joy is developed. The decision as to whether you need hospital treatment is usually made by your doctor. He has issued you with a referral, which you should hand in to the admissions office together with the remaining documents required for the treatment. In their department for acute geriatrics and early rehabilitation, they care for patients with typical diseases of old age. But it's not just about treating the symptoms of the disease. Patients should also be helped to restore skills that may have been affected by the disease so that they can continue to live independently after they are released. Preventive methods - such as the treatment of nutritional disorders - are therefore just as much a part of the range of geriatric services at the Sana Hospital in Radevormwald as surgical and rehabilitative measures. They offer: • Early rehabilitation to avoid the need for care, • professional treatment of the acute illness, • equipment and organization of social care after release, • Goal planning in consultation with patients and relatives. ANESTHESIA The department for anaesthesia, intensive care medicine and pain therapy supports the other specialist departments in the medical care of patients at the highest level. The department offers all common anesthetic procedures and performs over 2,000 anesthetics every year. The modern anesthesia machines and monitoring units, as well as the constant presence of the specialist staff, contribute to making anesthesia in the Sana Hospital Radevormwald as safe as possible. All medications of a modern anesthetic management are used. In doing so, they make sure that the patient's organism is subjected to as little stress as possible, they ensure that the anesthetic is gentle and that the patient wakes up in a pleasant manner, depending on the circumstances. INTERNAL MEDICINE The specialist department for internal medicine ensures the regional basic care of patients with diseases of the internal organs and treats the entire spectrum of internal diseases close to home with the help of modern diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. The specialist department is headed by chief physician Dr. medical Volker Brockhaus, doctor for internal medicine and cardiology. The department has 45 beds and treats around 2,300 patients with diseases from the entire spectrum of internal medicine every year. ORTHOPEDICS AND ACCIDENT SURGERY, SPORTS TRAUMATOLOGY In addition to acute care for accidents of all kinds, they offer treatment for acute and chronic diseases of the musculoskeletal system based on the latest knowledge, as well as conservative and surgical spinal therapy. They have a large outpatient clinic and are licensed to treat all accidents at work and at school (inpatient D-Arzt procedure). Their team is at your disposal 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. Degenerative processes of wear and tear, congenital or acquired malpositions in the shoulder, hip, knee and ankle joints lead to limitations in joint function and pain, which can make it necessary to implant a prosthesis (artificial joint) after conservative treatment measures have been exhausted. For this, they offer the entire spectrum of endoprosthetic care, from the initial implantation of cement-free and/or partially or completely cemented shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and ankle prostheses to complex prosthesis replacement operations. Necessary replacement operations with modular prosthesis systems on the hip and knee joint are also regularly carried out in their house. In addition, they treat patients with acute back pain, who often come to them as an emergency when they are unable to walk or stand and are treated around the clock, as well as people with chronic back diseases and spinal problems. The experienced team of doctors treats acute and chronic injuries to joints, bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Sports injuries can mostly be treated without surgery, for example with injection therapy or targeted equipment training. If these treatments are not sufficient, joint reflections are used. They protect the tissue, reduce pain and reduce the risk of infection.
