The Grünstadt District Hospital went into operation on January 1st, 1967. To date it has been expanded, rebuilt and modernized several times. With several hundred employees, it is one of the largest employers in Grünstadt and the surrounding area. It has specialist departments for internal medicine, surgery, gynecology, obstetrics, anesthesia, intensive care medicine, pain therapy and ENT. Around 10,000 inpatients are treated here every year, and many hundreds of children see the light of day every year. That is why the hospital has been recognized as a baby-friendly maternity hospital by the World Health Organization and UNICEF.
