We are Europe's leading centre for paraplegia, spinal cord injuries and diseases. We have a common objective of delivering holistic, lifelong care for patients. We claim to be the "best in class" in all important disciplines, as well as acute and long-term treatment.
To this end:
- as a unique centre, we offer our patients services which are geared towards their specific needs, meeting high ethical, scientific and practical demands. The GZI's Research Team makes a central contribution towards achieving the desired targets.
- on the one hand, we wish to deploy our special departments as an integrated part of the holistic care we give our patients; on the other hand, they are establishing themselves in the external market both regionally and nationally as important service providers in medical provision.
- we run the SPC with highly skilled, enthusiastic employees who put their patients first, taking responsibility for the extraordinary satisfaction of our patients and their relatives. This creates a sense of purpose and personal fulfilment and creates the energy that it takes to contribute towards the development of the SPC, in the service of the patient.
- we nurture a corporate culture which is characterised by common values and shared objectives, namely commitment, leadership, a humane approach, cooperation, and openness and fairness in our dealings with one another.
Innovation, cost efficiency and enhanced quality are important prerequisites for the implementation of this vision and for sustainable success. In order to maintain our freedom to make decisions and our control, we feel that it is imperative to be on a sound financial footing.
