The University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf launched a new magazine Wednesday (July 5th, 2017) called “Life” giving insider views of nurses, doctors and patients. The first edition highlights nurses who opt for the care profession, doctors’ ideas of leisure and patients’ experiences at the hospital. The magazine will be published four times per year and targets readers throughout Hamburg. It will be available in Eppendorf and in other districts of Hamburg. The magazine also features a report about Merlin Schelhas, who contracted colon cancer at the tender age of 17. Schelhas has since recovered and would now like to study medicine.
Welfare of people in Hamburg
The “Life” magazine highlights the commitment shown by UKE’s doctors, nursing staff and all other hospital employees to the welfare of people in Hamburg and the region. The magazine quotes Kirstin Beyer, a nurse at UKE, as saying: “I knew as a child that I wanted to be a nurse. You must have a positive, people-orientated attitude throughout your profession. It is incredibly beautiful to experience the patient’s gratitude.”
