Courageous, competent chief physician

Courageous, competent chief physician

Management, several companions, family and many more – the number of those who came to pay tribute to kora hahn in the festival hall was enormous. And this did not come by chance, because 29 years of medical work at the district hospital obermain, of which 23 years as chief physician of the clinic for internal rheumatology, are already a reference. The "chief physician of stature and stature" although she relinquishes the management, she continues to work three times a week in the outpatient rheumatology department in kutzenberg.

In his speech, senior medical director thomas kallert referred to kora hahn’s long vita.

Born in heiligenstadt, thuringia, hahn graduated from high school in 1972, received state certification as a nurse in 1974, and eventually studied human medicine in leipzig and erfurt. She passed the medical state examination in 1980 and spent her first years as a doctor. In 1985 hahn passed the specialist examination. In april 1990, she was hired as a senior physician in the rheumatism clinic of the district hospital obermain. With effect from 1. In october 1991, she was temporarily appointed head of the clinic for internal rheumatology, and as of 1 october 1991, she was appointed head of the clinic for internal rheumatology. January 1996 hahn was appointed as chief physician.

"Throughout the years, she stood not only for the cause, that is, the care of the patients entrusted to her, but also unwaveringly to her staff, and always with clarity and straightforwardness.", she acknowledged kallert.

"A feeling of great gratitude

Emotional words found katja bittner as chairman of the health facilities of the district of upper franconia (gebo). Hahn is losing "a piece of persistence", what should be emphasized at this time. Her retirement is therefore associated with a feeling of deep gratitude. Hahn has worked as a courageous and competent chief physician with hard work and heart and has had a lasting influence on rheumatological care in the region. The close link between outpatient and inpatient care has always been close to her heart, which is an invaluable advantage for the patients, bittner said.

Like thomas kallert, she expressed her pleasure that hahn continued to contribute her expertise in the outpatient area in kutzenberg: "fortunately, you only have one leg in retirement."

Hahn handed over the reins of clinical management in internal rheumatology to dirk gunthel at the end of october. Successor knows he’s stepping into rough patches. "The clinic stands on a stable foundation that you have built up", he took his hat off to hahn and assured her of continuing the clinic in this spirit.

The closing words were spoken by kora hahn herself, who – known to be uncomplicated and cheerful – amusingly recounted her somewhat bumpy start at the district hospital almost 30 years ago: she arrived much too late for the job interview in 1990 because she simply could not find kutzenberg – at that time still without a navigation device. She was all the happier when she finally got the job. Three decades ago, the clocks were different, said hahn, looking back. Women in management positions were still anything but self-evident. And it was customary for the staff to live on the hospital grounds in kutzenberg.

She also remembered colleagues who had died in the meantime and thanked the nurses, doctors and the administration. "We did not always agree, but we always found a consensus", she drew a very positive conclusion.
