University heart medicine with great experience
The medical clinic with a focus on cardiology on the Virchow-Klinikum campus (director: Prof. Dr. Burkert Pieske) welcomes you. With us, people with heart disease are treated and cared for at the highest level. As a university clinic, we also make an important contribution to research and teaching.
The medical clinic with a focus on cardiology is part of the Charité — the largest university clinic in Europe and one of the four cardiac medical clinics of the Charité Center for Cardiovascular and Vascular Medicine (CC11). Together with the German Heart Center Berlin, we are developing into the University Heart Center Berlin, which will be Europe’s largest heart center in the future. At the site, we work closely with the Clinic for Cardiovascular Surgery, which moved at the beginning of 2018 (Director: Prof. Dr. Volkmar Falk).
Our team specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of all cardiovascular diseases. Where necessary, we draw on the interdisciplinary competence of other medical facilities at the Charité so that you can always count on excellent, holistic care.
With a heart for your heart — you can count on us!
Services and therapies in the field of cardiovascular diseases
The cardiology department at the Virchow-Klinikum treats the entire spectrum of cardiovascular diseases.
Every day there is a 24-hour standby for cardiac emergencies (heart attack, heart failure, cardiac arrhythmia), which can be presented to theemergency room.
As a clinic of the Charité University Medicine, we use the latest diagnostic and therapeutic methods and scientific findings for the best possible individual and patient-oriented treatment.
Cardiac intensive care medicine
The cardiological intensive care unit W47i and the cardiological intermediate care station (IMC) W2i are used to treat critically ill and unstable patients.
Cardiological intensive care hotline (24/7): acute myocardial infarction, cardiac arrhythmias, cardiogenic shock and cardiovascular support (ECMO).

In the last few years, essential knowledge about the diagnosis and therapy of heart failure (heart muscle weakness) has been gained. Depending on the filling and ejection functions of the heart, different types of heart failure are distinguished. For heart failure with a reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), both established and new therapy methods have been available for some time to improve symptoms and prognosis. Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF, “diastolic heart failure”, “stiff heart”) can be better diagnosed with new diagnostic methods and requires an individualized therapy concept.
