Since the Robert Bosch Stiftung was founded back in 1964, health care has been one of its core focuses, with the Robert Bosch Hospital inaugurated by Robert Bosch himself in 1940 at its heart. Today, we are working to strengthen the future viability of our health care system, in keeping with our founder’s multidimensional understanding of health. We are committed to health care that is geared to people and their social needs and that continues to provide quality care to all people in Germany, even in view of the current challenges posed by the range of diseases and demographic change, globalization, digitalization, and innovative biotechnologies.

What we focus on

People in the Health Care System

We want to empower those who work in health care to master the challenges in their respective fields and to act as competently as possible.

A Health Care System for the Future

We promote sustainable care models for real-life application and work toward improving the general health care framework.
