Klinikum am Weissenhof is a modern, efficient hospital with the seven following independent clinics: General Psychiatry West, General Psychiatry East, Gerontopsychiatry, Addiction Therapy, Forensic Psychiatry, Child & Youth Psychiatry and Psychosomatic Medicine.
Our patients receive treatment at the following locations: Weinsberg, Heilbronn, Schwäbisch Hall, Künzelsau, Winnenden and Ludwigsburg. With around 1,300 employees, the hospital ranks among the largest employers in the Heilbronn area. With the Heilbronn-Franken region, our catchment area covers just under 1.1 million residents. Almost 13,000 patients from all age groups receive treatment on an inpatient, outpatient and day-patient basis here each year.
Alongside its regular hospital operations, Klinikum am Weissenhof also holds basic and advanced training events from all specialist departments. We organise regular concerts, presentations and exhibitions, which anyone interested is welcome to attend. We also hold an open day every two years, which is very well received among the local population.
General psychiatry focuses on treatment of adults with acute mental disorders.These are predominantly schizophrenic, bipolar and depressive issues, personality disorders and acute life crises.
Geriatric psychiatry regards itself as a branch of clinical psychiatry and psychotherapy that addresses diagnosis and therapy for psychiatric illnesses among older people.
Comprehensive and specialised treatment choices are available to the increasing number of people growing older. Alongside inpatient and day-patient services, we offer comprehensive outpatient care, as well as measures to promote health and prevent illness. Special offers are also available for those suffering from dementia.
The field of psychosomatics focuses on the study of interactions and mutual influence between body and soul in humans. These include physical disorders where no adequate organic findings are demonstrable, psychological disorders which also have physical effects such as eating disorders, as well as physical illnesses whose progression depends heavily on the mental state of the patient.
The objective is to alleviate physical and psychological symptoms and develop a helpful understanding together with patients of the various relationships of their illness.
Addiction treatment services focus on pathologies in the context of harmful use of drugs, alcohol and medicine. Alongside qualified withdrawal treatment, which includes detoxification and motivation both for further treatment and changing the consumption behaviour of addictive substances, patients suffering from additional psychiatric illnesses are also treated.
Klinikum am Weissenhof performs involuntary treatment services in the state of Baden-Württemberg. This branch of psychiatry treats mentally ill or disturbed offenders and those suffering from dependency. The legal mandate is to "secure and improve" with the objective of achieving psychosocial rehabilitation of the patients. Provision of accommodation is ordered by law here. However, the legislator differentiates between mentally ill patients (§ 63 of the German Penal Code (StGB)) that reside in a psychiatric hospital and patients suffering from addiction issues (§ 64 of the German Penal Code (StGB)) that reside in a drug rehabilitation centre.
Child and youth psychiatry offers therapeutic treatment and diagnosis services for patients up to the age of 18 and their families. Regular diagnoses include emotional and social behavioural disorders, crises, trauma-based disorders, attention deficit disorders, substance disorders and youth psychoses. In addition to this, eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia are treated. Prevention and aftercare are also important issues in this discipline. Getting parents and caregivers involved in the treatment is extremely important. The objective here is to improve the ability of young patients to deal with day-to-day life to such an extent that they can once again strive for appropriate development goals.
