The Pulmonology Ward C3b is located on the 3.floor of building O24. We have 25 modern beds in 10 double rooms and 5 single rooms (isolation rooms) available for the care and treatment of pulmonary diseases.
As the Lung Clinic of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE), we treat all disorders of the lungs. As a university center, our focus is on severe lung diseases and pulmonary endoscopy. Within the framework of the Martin Zeitz Center for Rare Diseases, we treat patients with ???? at the Center for Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (CPAHH). In addition to PAH, our main areas of emphasis include the treatment of cystic fibrosis in adults, interstitial lung diseases, rare lung diseases , and as part of the University Transplant Center, patients before and after a lung transplant. In addition, our modern equipment used in pulmonary endoscopy offers an extensive range of diagnostic and therapeutic options. To ensure comprehensive diagnostics and treatment for our patients, each case is discussed individually by a group of different experts in interdisciplinary boards, particularly the Thorax Board, the Board for Interstitial Lung diseases and Rare Lung Diseases, and the Transplantation Board.
The central bed-occupancy management coordinates your admission to the Pulmonology Ward C3B.

On the day of admission, a coordinator from bed-occupancy will inform you between 8:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. by phone whether there is capacity for admission. When you receive a confirmation, please check in on your admission day in Building O50. Here, your data will be electronically recorded and you will obtain your personal patient bracelet. For your own safety, we ask you to wear the patient bracelet during your entire hospital stay. This allows you to be identified in every situation.
