Hans-Werner Kick, long-serving Managing Director of the Berufsgenossenschaftlichen Universitätsklinikums Bergmannsheil university clinic, has been honoured at a big retirement event. Retiring due to his age, he had been responsible for the clinic for 22 years as the Hospital Director and Managing Director.
“The Bergmannsheil is in a better position than ever before – as regards the buildings as well as from a medical and economic point of view,” commented Xaver Schmidt, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board. “You, Mr Kick, played a decisive role in this,” Schmidt referred to the many new buildings which were planned and constructed under Mr Kick’s responsibility, with the most comprehensive construction work amounting to a volume of over 100 million Euros currently still underway. This new building comprises wards and a specialist wing including a new accident and emergency section, modern operating theatres, intensive wards and specialist departments.
Mr Kick summed up by saying: “I am very grateful for the trust that you have put in me and for the fact that I was allowed to work for this clinic for more than two decades. I will always feel very close to the clinic.” His successor will be Clemens Maurer who was formerly employed as the Managing Director of the Katholische Klinikum Duisburg gGmbH.
