The University Clinic is operated jointly by the Medical University of Graz and Steiermärkische Krankenanstaltengesellschaft m.b.Hfunctions as a regional hospital for southern, eastern and western Styria but above all as the primary and reference hospital for the south-eastern Austrian region.
The University Clinic of Paediatric and Adolescent Medicine and the University Clinic of Paediatric and Adolescent Surgery, supplemented by the Clinical Department of Paediatric Radiology of the University Department of Radiology, form the Children’s Centre Graz.
We practise paediatric and adolescent medicine in its entire breadth and with all specialisations.
General information about the clinic
Each year over 9,000 children, adolescents and, to a lesser extent, adults receive inpatient care at our university hospital, and approximately 40,000 children, adolescents and adults receive outpatient care (with over 100,000 outpatient presentations). Approximately 7,500 accompanying persons are admitted each year.
We practise paediatric and adolescent medicine in its entire breadth and with all specialisations; in addition, we also care for chronically ill adults with congenital diseases in certain areas and in close collaboration with other specialist disciplines.
The University Clinic of Paediatric and Adolescent Medicine consists of:
The research units in the Clinical Departments of General Paediatrics, Neonatology, Paediatric Haematology/Oncology and Paediatric Pulmonology and Allergology as well as in the joint facility represent several, but not all, focus research areas of the University Hospital; we are also an associated national centre of the MetabERN European reference network.
For more information, see:
Each year about 5,800 inpatients with 4,300 operations and around 26,000 outpatients (about 56,000 examinations) are treated in the emergency outpatient department and eight special outpatient departments.
We guarantee gentlest possible paediatric and adolescent surgery, safe treatment pathways and a child-friendly environment. In addition to emergency care, the spectrum of treatment includes neonatal surgery, paediatric traumatology, paediatric urology and abdominal and thoracic surgical interventions for children and adolescents up to the age of 18.
The University Clinic is certified as a Paediatric Traumatology Reference Centre by the German Society for Accident Surgery, and is an associated national centre of the European Reference Network for Intestinal Congenital Malformations (ERNICA) and the European Reference Network for Vascular Malformations (VASCERN).
Further core areas are the “Metabolism and Microbiome in Paediatric Surgery” research unit and accident research and prevention in paediatric traumatology.
Research as one of the core tasks of the University Clinic of Paediatric and Adolescent Medicine is structured either according to research focuses or the research units in the respective departments (see clinic details).
The OKIDS network centre is in close partnership with the University Clinic of Paediatric and Adolescent Medicine Graz, thus ensuring efficient study initiation and implementation.
