Euromed Clinic success. (Editorial).

In my editorial of May 1996, I first reported on the new Euromed Clinic built in Furth, Germany, and devoted to the practice of state-of-the-art private medicine. In concept, this facility is not unlike that of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and it includes an affiliated hotel (Pyramide Hotel) (1) Marlene and I had the privilege to revisit the Euromed Clinic in March of this year to participate in a special scientific meeting on neuro-otology and a marvelous social program at Erlangen and historic Bamberg. This meeting immediately followed the 29th annual Congress of the Neuro-otological and Equilibriometric Society (NES) meeting in Bad Kissingen, Germany, hosted by Prof. Dr. Claus-Franz Claussen. Prof. Dr. med. Toni C. Haid, head of the ENT department of the Euromed Clinic, was honored by the NES for his achievements in otoneurosurgery.

Since our last visit the Euromed Clinic has almost doubled in size, with facilities to accommodate more hospital patient suites and facilities for special treatments (figure). New, comfortable, two-room hospital suites have been added, and all of the rooms have a large, thin television screen and an individual aquarium filled with live, colorful exotic fish. A new large, round, high-ceiling reception hall has a grand piano, and patients and visitors are offered live music for entertainment.

The department of otolaryngology under the direction of Prof. Haid, who is a neurootologist, has grown to include five otolaryngologists and an adequate supporting staff. Dr. med. Dethard Nagel, in addition to being a working professional jazz musician, concentrates on facial plastic surgery and rhinology. Doz. Dr. med. Joachim Rehberg specializes in head and neck cancer. Drs. Antje Gonschorek and Michael Henneken have recently joined the department.

The ENT department has seen more than 10,000 patients since its opening in 1995. The surgical suites and the outpatient clinics are sparkling new and have the latest sophisticated equipment for voice, airway, allergy, endoscopic, vestibular, and hearing examination. The Euromed Clinic is a showplace of the most modem practice of otolaryngology. Its success is a tribute to the private practice of medicine.
