University Hospital Hradec Králové is now one of the largest medical facilities not only in Eastern Bohemia but also throughout the Czech Republic (CR). It is a state-of-the-art facility spanning a wide range of medical fields and serves as a catchment center for approximately 1,000,000 inhabitants from all over the Czech Republic.
More than 41,000 patients are hospitalized every year at the hospital’s 39 workplaces, which include 24 departments and over 1370 beds, with approximately 715,000 outpatients treated annually. The most complex surgical procedures are performed and modern diagnostic and treatment technologies are used. This makes University Hospital Hradec Králové comparable with similar hospitals in Europe.
University Hospital is an important research and educational institution closely connected with the Faculty of Medicine in Hradec Králové.
Recently, the most important projects have included the building of a central admission for adult patients, including a heliport (Emergency), introducing a state-of-the-art drug delivery system (Blue Robot Pharmacy), the acquisition of the daVinci robotic operating system, hospital ophthalmologists participating in the MEDEVAC humanitarian program, and many other such projects. In the following years, the complex reconstruction and extension of the Pavilion of Academician Bedrna will be prepared at a price of over 2.4 billion CZK, creating one of the largest and most modern surgical centers in the Czech Republic.
