Currently, Hessen offers good medical care. Every year, the Hessian State Government invests large sums in construction projects which upgrade Hessen’s hospitals to modern institutes offering optimal medical care. In close cooperation with all Hessian healthcare participants, the Hessian State Government has agreed on a comprehensive set of measures to help the healthcare sector to deal with the challenges of demographic change. This includes strengthening the professional development of general medical practitioners through competence centers and promoting new medical practices in areas where regional healthcare services are required with funding of up to 50,000 euro per practice. In addition, Hessen offers cooperation projects in the field of medicine and healthcare.
