Bavarian cabinet passes law for new TUM University Hospital

The clinics of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are to work together under a joint organizational unit in the future. On Tuesday, the Bavarian cabinet initiated corresponding amendments to the Bavarian University Hospital Act for the German Heart Center Munich (DHM) and the Klinikum rechts der Isar (MRI). The state parliament will now take the final vote.

TUM President Prof. Thomas F. Hofmann emphasized: "This is an important strategic decision to further strengthen the excellence of both clinical institutions at TUM and to leverage valuable synergies in medical research, technological innovation, and healthcare. In this way, we strengthen the cardiology field and develop our TUM University Hospital into a beacon with international appeal."

The DHM will remain an organizationally independent institution within the TUM University Hospital. The medical director of the DHM will be a member of the hospital’s board. The planned merger will not result in personnel changes or less favorable conditions for staff (e.g., salary, collective agreements).
