Legal form University Hospital Tübingen

Independent Public-Law Institution

In the course of the reforms carried out in medicine at University level in Baden-Württemberg in 1998, the University Hospital Tübingen was converted to a Public-Law Institution with legal responsibility. This new legal status provided the University Hospital Tübingen with the opportunity to adapt its health-care and the efficiency of its financial management in a quick and practical manner to meet today's requirements. A greater degree of responsibility and more autonomy for the Faculty also led to further improvements in the fields of medical research and teaching.
The Hospital's staff also benefit from this development, as an economically sound and efficient Hospital and a self-accountable Faculty are dependable employers, offering secure employment.
In proportion to the success achieved in continuing to improve performance in the areas of health-care, research and teaching, the University Hospital Tübingen and the Faculty of Medicine are able to consolidate and build on their position as the leaders in their field - to the benefit of both staff and patients.

One employer, but a variety of wage scales

A large number of professional groups such as doctors, scientists, nursing staff or administrative staff work in the Hospital. But as these all have different employers, they are subject to a variety of collective wage agreements. Doctors and dentists working in the field of health-care are party to a contract with the State of Baden-Württemberg and are subject to the collective wage agreement TV-A. This also applies to all scientists, although they are subject to a different set of agreements (the collective wage agreement TV-L). All employees who have a labour contract with the Hospital itself, principally all the non-scientific staff, are subject to a special collective wage agreement, TV UK-T.
All our staff members are, however, fully committed to "their" Hospital - our competitiveness is to a great extent based on this factor.

Improvements in the fields of research and teaching

The reform permitted further improvements in the fields of research and teaching. The Faculty of Medicine is now organised along the lines of a State Company in respect of the State budget provisions. The State grant for research and teaching is paid direct to the Faculty of Medicine, which now has comprehensive powers for the administration and the distribution of said funds, as well as for the organisation of the medical and scientific spheres. The Faculty's Executive Board of Directors and the Faculty Advisory Council are vested with the appropriate functions and authority, as well as the responsibility for the same.

Working closely together

The two divisions, Hospital (health-care) and the University Faculty (research and teaching) are separate entities in law, but they work together in the closest possible manner. This co-operation is ensured in two ways by the reform legislation: On the one hand by the reciprocal integration of personnel respectively in the Hospital and the Faculty of Medicine, and on the other hand by the all-encompassing obligation imposed to ensure mutual agreement and due respect in all important decisions which might affect the future development of the other partner. For example, without consultation the Hospital is not empowered to make any decisions on structural matters, such as the establishment of a new medical department. Similarly, the Faculty of Medicine may not make any unilateral decision on the re-occupation of a Professorial Chair in the Hospital sector.
