101RESEARCH, TEACHING AND DEVELOPMENT MANAGEMENT REPORT masters study programme open to our junior com- mercial executives. RESEARCH, TEACHING AND DEVELOPMENT By acquiring the university hospitals in Gießen and Marburg and integrating them into the Group's net- work as well as operating Herzzentrum Leipzig for many years, RHÖN-KLINIKUM AG has succeeded in vastly broadening its medical science base. Thanks to the direct link that the Group's hospitals have to university maximum care and in turn the direct access to university research findings, scientific knowledge can be quickly translated into modern medical care and competently delivered to the regions. With this linking of our Group facilities to university research and teaching we as a respon- sible private provider of healthcare services ­ fully in keeping with our corporate philosophy ­ offer our patients over all care levels a broad range of good- quality and independent medical care that everyone can afford. Apart from our university medical sites, numerous other Group hospitals engage in an open scientific dialogue. This ranges from holding scientific confer- ences over participation in long-term clinical stud- ies and promising international research projects to performance of university teaching mandates and offering specific further training measures for hos- pital doctors. For example, the Pneumology Clinic of Zentralklinik Bad Berka was selected as one of eight centres for a study on improving the quality of life of people suffering from lung disease. Herz- und Gefäß-Klinik Bad Neustadt is taking part in the inter- national multi-centre study for research on stentless biological heart valves. The Neurologische Klinik based at Group headquarters in Bad Neustadt con- tinued the SEWOP Parkinson's study already pre- sented in the last Annual Report and was able to demonstrate the superiority of an innovative drug. Our specialists in Hildesheim from the trauma sur- gery and orthopaedics departments are participat- ing in various international research projects, devel- oping innovative compositions for osteosynthesis in an interfacility dialogue. These measures and activities help us to get mod- ern medical research to our patients quickly so that we can treat and heal them ever more effectively. Further specific examples of medical research and development at RHÖN-KLINIKUM Group are found in this Annual Report. CONSOLIDATED TREND SITES, CAPACITIES AND SERVICES With its 53 hospitals in Germany and a market share of approximately 3.5% with reference to capacities or revenues, RHÖN-KLINIKUM AG is a leading provider of acute-care hospital services, which accounts for around 97% of consolidated revenues and is rounded off at some sites by the offerings of our rehabilitation clinics. The establish- ment of outpatient medical care centres (MVZs) is in full swing. These latter two areas did not satisfy the size requirements for segment reporting in financial year 2009. 14.0% medical-technical services Analysis of personnel at RHÖN-KLINIKUM Group 13.7% doctors' services 32.7% nurses' services 6.6% other personnel 1.1% special services 7.2% administrative 1.6% technical 12.8% supply and misc. services 10.3% functional
