In our Centre for Children and Adolescents, we treat and attend to for children and adolescents in different medical disciplines from the first days post natum up to adulthood. Included are the Centre of Social Paediatrics, the Güldene Sonne in Rehburg-Loccum, the Cochlear Implant Centre "Wilhelm Hirte" in Groß-Buchholz (Hanover) and the Children's and Youth Hospital “auf der Bult”, which is among the largest comparable facilities in Germany. In our School for Professional Health and Paediatric Nursing we train since more than 85 years. In addition, the children's and youth hospital is an academic teaching hospital. The centre is run by the Hannoversche Kinderheilanstalt (children's hospital and social institution), an independent, private, non-profit foundation since 1863.
