Capio Mosel-Eifel-Klinik – First veins clinic to receive PKV quality seal

Bad Bertrich. As first specialist clinic in Germany, Capio Mosel-Eifel-Klinik, specialist hospital for veins diseases and recurrence surgeries, receives the sought-after quality seal of the private health insurers (PKV) for its outstanding quality of treatment.

Within a press conference the cooperation now has been sealed with signing the partnership.

Basic requirement for a corresponding agreement with the PKV association and for issuing the seal is an above average medical quality. The quality partnership confirms an outstanding medical quality of selected and important service areas of the quality partner.

That’s where Capio Mosel-Eifel-Klinik with its absolute peak values scored: With extreme low complication rates and recurrence rates the specialist clinic entirely fulfills those criteria. Beside the medical quality also aspects of patient safety and patient satisfaction as well as service features have been considered. Only by proving a quality far beyond average in all points the clinic is receiving the sought-after seal.

„This award shows that our established internal quality processes have created a quality standard which is offering all patients maximum quality and safety. The entire staff must be very proud of that“, Petra Hager-Häusler, Clinic Manager of the leading veins clinic in Germany, rejoices.

Daniel Konieczny, Managing Director of the National Committee of PKV in Rhineland-Palatinate, emphasized during the joint press conference: „This seal shall enable persons concerned and relatives a better orientation when selecting a hospital. In this way interested persons can seek via the website www.derprivatpatient.de by means of different criteria (like zip codes or country map) for clinics which have undergone a quality test and whose work in single areas have been assessed as outstanding. Regular inspections ensure that the high requirements are permanently fulfilled.“

By the way: Quality partnerships with PKV are a positive signal for all patients, independent from their insurance status, as the quality seal of course also facilitates all persons under statutory insurance the search after a suitable hospital.
