Healthcare sector

With over 18,000 employees, the health and social services sector is one of the most important economic sectors in Mönchengladbach. The sector also records some of the highest employment growth – after all, a strongly positioned and differentiated hospital landscape radiates far beyond the city area into the region. Last but not least, a number of medical centers have been established in recent years, which have also stimulated the real estate market.

In the recent past, startups have also made a key contribution to the future development of the medical and healthcare sector – with innovative approaches and disruptive, digital business models from the “smart health” sector.
