Space for specialists
The Health Campus in Bochum features a unique combination of public facilities for health administration and research as well as space for innovative companies in the health industry. This concentration enables close cooperation, knowledge transfer, and dynamic innovation. Many companies from the health industry have settled in the area, including the Aesculap Academy, Compu Group Medical, or VISUS Health IT GmbH. The entire Health Campus in Bochum has been developed with funds from the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the European Union. It comprises the North Rhine-Westphalia Health Campus in the north and the Bochum Health Campus in the south.
The Health Campus NRW was developed on the northern part of the site. It allowed North Rhine-Westphalia to once again underline its mission to become a permanent top player in the health field. The Health Campus NRW is anchored locally in Bochum, but its activities are focused on the entire state of NRW. In a culture of partnership, the Health Campus with its joint projects contributes to overcoming the gaps and boundaries between care processes, professional groups, and between science, care, and the health industry.
In this way, it strengthens NRW in the demographic change as a state of high-quality and needs-based medical and nursing care for all citizens. The institutions located here include the State Centre for Health (LZG.NRW), the State Cancer Registry (LKR NRW), the State Institute for Work Design (LIA.NRW), and the University of Health and the Protein Research Centre ProDi.
The southern part of the health campus in Bochum, the Health Campus Bochum, comprises approx. 55,000 square metres of fully developed and meanwhile fully marketed space. Companies in the health industry have settled here to take advantage of the synergies of this extraordinary environment.
