Children and adults: Wesel gets two emergency practices

In July, KNVO opened two central emergency rooms at Marien Hospital in Wesel. There is a close collaboration with the hospital.

On 1 July 2022, the Association of Compulsory Health Insurance Physicians in North Rhine (KVNO) will open two new central emergency services in Wesel for outpatient treatment outside the normal practice opening hours – ie in the evening, at night and on weekends. This was announced by KVNO on Monday. In the Marien-Hospitalet on Pastor-Janßen-Straße, separate emergency rooms are being set up for adult patients as well as children and young people. In case of acute, non-life-threatening symptoms, patients from the region will be able to contact the respective outpatient emergency services directly at these locations.

The facilities are run by KVNO in collaboration with Marien Hospital – this enables close collaboration with the clinic’s admission area, according to the Association of Mandatory Health Insurance Doctors. “With the opening of the emergency practice in Wesel, we are improving the outpatient emergency care in the northern district on the right bank of the Rhine and making it future-proof at a high level,” says Dr. Frank Bergmann, KVNO CEO. “With the new structure, we are also implementing the guidelines for federal and state policy, which require close cooperation between residents and hospitals in emergency care.”

This shows a high level of confidence in our company’s performance and competence, “says CEO Karl-Ferdinand von Fürstenberg. The emergency practice is a useful supplement to the emergency rooms, which we will continue to deliver without restrictions as before in both adult and pediatric medicine.

Adult and young patients will benefit from being cared for from July onwards in the two new practices by experienced resident doctors in the immediate vicinity of the hospital. This takes place in a fixed place at reliable times and is service-oriented. “This modern form of emergency medical treatment is an important contribution to breaking the sometimes rigid juxtaposition of outpatient and inpatient treatment. We very much welcome that in the form of more effective patient care, “von Fürstenberg emphasized.

The opening hours for emergency preparedness practices in the district will be adjusted

Simultaneously with the start-up of the two facilities in Wesel, the opening hours of the outpatient emergency services will be adjusted across the district.
