The journey home with your baby

Safty in the car is important!

To protect your child against the danger of accident you can order a special car seat for your baby from our nurses. The safety seat CYBEX ATON has been recommended by the Austrian Drivers' Association (ÖAMTC) in the Group 0+ (0-18 months).

Childcare

Who takes care for your child if you have to go to the hospital? If this should be a concern of yours, we have the solution: Children between 1 and 8 years can be looked after daily in the kindergarten "Harmonie". This kindergarten is located vis-à-vis our clinic and is open Monday to Friday from 7 am to 5 pm. The costs for care including 3 meals from an own kitchen amount to EURO 25,- per day. Please contact the director of the kindergarten, Ms. Monika Ziegler, in order to reserve a place for your child in time.

If you need a babysitter for a few hours only, Ms. Ziegler will also be pleased to assist.
