Ward C3 | Psychiatric intensive care unit for men and women

Doctor in charge

PD Dr. med. Cornelius Schüle (Consultant)

Our psychiatric intensive care and admission unit has 22 inpatient beds. We mainly treat men. A 25-person team consisting of doctors, psychologists, nurses, a social worker and an occupational therapist will offer you medical and human support in coping with your difficult life situation. The work of this multiprofessional team aims to recognise and strengthen your personal resources and to maintain and promote your independence as much as possible for the duration of your treatment on our ward. Our ward has a cosy atmosphere thanks to its recreation room with a TV area and table football, dining room, group therapy room, smoking room and fitness corner with an exercise bicycle.

Main priorities

The full range of acute and severe mental illnesses and life crises, e.g. schizophrenic psychoses, depressions, manias, acute deliria, alcohol and drug intoxications and dementias.
Crisis intervention in acute life crises, e.g. suicidal thoughts or after attempted suicide.

Treatment concept


We offer our patients the following care and treatment elements:

  • Intensive monitoring and care.
  • Careful diagnosis of the acute illness and immediate, individualised pharmacological and psychotherapeutic treatment.
  • Provision of knowledge about the respective illness, design of an individual treatment plan and development of procedures to prevent relapse.
  • Individually tailored treatment plans and the promotion of existing resources, with the involvement of relatives, which should enable patients to lead an independent life again.
  • Patient-oriented, individual care system that enables holistic care for patients. This includes e.g. biography work, daily schedules, household-related activities and accompaniment into the home environment.
  • Inclusion in concomitant therapies such as physiotherapy and music therapy, art therapy and occupational therapy.
  • Support and advice from our social services

The aim is to achieve a reduction in symptoms as quickly as possible so that patients can be transferred for further treatment to an open ward that is specialised in their particular illness.


Our hospital will gladly offer you the option to participate in modern scientific studies on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of your particular illness.
We are happy to inform you about the latest medical knowledge and offer you novel treatment procedures based on state-of-the-art medical research.
