The Klinikum am Weissenhof is a modern, efficient hospital with seven independent clinics for general psychiatry, community-based general psychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, addiction therapy, forensic psychiatry, child and youth psychiatry, as well as psychosomatic medicine. The hospital currently has 738 total beds, some 572 of which are reserved for in-patient treatment, 146 for day-patient treatment and 20 for out-patient treatment.
Our patients receive treatment in Weinsberg, Heilbronn, Schwäbisch Hall, Künzelsau, Winnenden, Brackenheim and Ludwigsburg. Thanks to its workforce of over 1,600 employees, the hospital is among the largest employers in the Heilbronn area. With the Heilbronn-Franken region, our catchment area also encompasses just under 1.1 million residents. Almost 13,000 patients from all age groups are offered in-patient, day-patient, out-patient and home treatment every year here.
The hospital combines tradition and modernity. The oldest buildings are still from when the facility was first established in 1903, while the Mental Health Centre Schwäbisch Hall was inaugurated in 2015. The hospital's own park is popular among patients, employees and guests,who enjoy taking extended taking walks through its greenery. The small animal enclosure, around 3,800 trees, 10 km of paths and roads for taking walks, as well as the café and shop in the park offer a pleasant environment for visitors of all ages.
Alongside standard hospital operations, the Klinikum am Weissenhof offers both basic and advanced training sessions from all specialist departments. We also organise regular concerts, presentations and exhibitions, which anyone interested is more than welcome to attend. An open day is held every two years and is always well received among the local population.
