KLINIKUM FRANKFURT ODER ver a hundred kilometres' drive from Berlin, direct- ly on the border with Poland, is the location of Klinikum Frankfurt (Oder) ­ an intermediate care hospital with nearly all specialist disciplines. Within its broad medical offering the hospital has formed special areas and fields of focus. These include cardiovascular diseases, vascular diseases of the brain, tumour diseases as well as injuries and injury sequelae. Stem cell transplantations are also part of the offering, as is radiation therapy. The cardiology department has a heart catheter laboratory; a new area of focus is rhythmol- ogy. A strong emphasis is also placed on paediatrics, both in somatics and in psychology. The trend in interdiscipli- nary medicine is reflected by the Academic Teaching Hospital of Charité with several competence centres. In the Brandenburg-Berlin neuro competence centre, in the stroke, perinatal, breast, gastrointestinal and tumour cen- tre, patients are cared for with the combined expertise of the competent specialist disciplines. The figures on page illustrate the hospital's significance for this part of Brandenburg. But patients also come from beyond the Oder river from Slubice in Poland ­ as well as from Berlin. O 72
