Kaiserslautern hospital for Psychiatry, Psychosomatics and Psychotherapy

The Kaiserslautern hospital of the "Pfalzklinikum" has four wards with a total of 90 beds.


The up-to-date psychiatric hospital in Kaiserslautern offers mentally ill adults from the Western Palatinate the opportunity to get treated close to community. This enables e.g. closer contacts to the patients’ relatives and a co-operation with the attending physicians and therapists outside hospital, with self-help groups, homes and administrative bodies on site. Psychoses, depressions, addictive disorders and anxiety disorders are among the most common disease patterns.


Our hospital

The hospital ensures the day-care and inpatient treatment for mentally ill adults from the city and the rural district of Kaiserslautern. If required, an outpatient treatment in the psychiatric outpatient department is possible.


How are you accommodated?

The inpatient area has 90 beds on four separate wards with generously designed single and double bedrooms with ensuite bathroom.

On each ward, patients with different mental diseases are admitted.

The day-care area – our day-care hospital – has 20 spaces.


Who can get treated?

We offer special, professional help in case of different mental diseases, such as depressions, bipolar disorders, anxieties, psychoses, age-related mental diseases and dependence diseases.

All persons aged 18 and above suffering from psychiatric problems can come to our hospital.
