Every day, thousands of people benefit from our inpatient and outpatient services. We employ about 6,800 employees, who work every day to ensure that sick people get healthy again. Our employees work to ensure that people with disabilities can participate in our numerous rehabilitation, integration and inclusion programs, and that children and adolescents develop into strong and healthy individuals. Our employees also strive to be sure that seniors have the possibility to live as independently as possible, and that homeless people find new hope and perspectives for the future. In our hospices, we accompany people on their last steps in life.
Since the establishment of what is today the ecclesiastical charitable foundation Stiftung kreuznacher diakonie, we have attached great importance to the education and training of new professionals. We provide more than 700 training places for numerous professionals in the nursing, care, social and diaconal-theological sectors. For several years, Stiftung kreuznacher diakonie has trained significantly more people than it needed for its own operation. It is an important employer for the regional population at all of its locations.
The foundation Stiftung kreuznacher diakonie is an active participant in the mission of the church to witness God’s love for the world, Jesus Christ, to all people. Since its establishment, the foundation has been committed to this task and has been involved in the actions of Diakonie (a Protestant social and welfare organization) as an expression of the nature and life of church. The foundation supports and helps people in physical, mental and psychological distress, as well as people from a disadvantaged social background.
The foundation Stiftung kreuznacher diakonie is being managed by a full-time management board, whose members are appointed by the advisory board of Stiftung kreuznacher diakonie. All board members focus on their main areas of responsibility in the various divisions.
