Clinic in Stuttgart

With funding from the Eva Mayr-Stihl Foundation, the Klinikum Stuttgart is introducing a scholarship for specialist nurses to strengthen tumor medicine. The scholarship supports registered nurses at the Stuttgart Clinic who work in the care of patients with tumor diseases. It includes, among other things, a mentoring program and individually determined additional qualifications.

In addition to reliable working conditions and the level of salary, the opportunities for appreciation and qualification of nursing staff are regularly highlighted as important factors for job satisfaction. With these goals – qualification and appreciation – the Klinikum Stuttgart created the “Eva Mayr-Stihl Nursing Grant”. In the pilot phase, the scholarship will initially support 20 registered nurses from the Stuttgart Clinic who work directly in the care of patients with tumor diseases, for example in oncology, the operating room or radiation therapy. The funding includes common continuing education for fellows, a mentorship program and individually determined additional qualifications in the form of specialist training.

The scholarship program was made possible by the generous support of the Eva Mayr-Stihl Foundation, which has been heavily involved with the Stuttgart clinic for years. The long-standing support of the Stuttgart Cancer Center – Tumor Center Eva Mayr-Stihl, for example in personalized medicine and precision medicine, is thus further expanded.

Foundation President Robert Mayr praised the concept: “The scholarship program qualifies nurses who achieve something special, take responsibility and make health possible. This valuable initiative of the Klinikum Stuttgart complements our previous funding at an important time and is intended to show great appreciation for the achievements of carers to express.”

The director of the clinic, Professor Jan Steffen Jürgensen, thanked the Eva Mayr-Stihl Foundation: “This is exceptional. Good medicine is teamwork. With the scholarship program we strengthen nursing and promote nurses’ perspectives – also for the benefit of our patients.”

The number of nursing training positions with excellent training opportunities has been increased to more than 1,000 at the clinic in Stuttgart. New staff apartments for around 500 employees in positive energy houses will be completed this year. The number of crèches was also further increased with the opening of a new company crèche.

The Klinikum Stuttgart promotes work vouchers, offers deferred compensation for the rental of cheap e-bikes and already intensively promotes the further education of nursing staff.
