Cottbus – The state of Brandenburg could take over the Cottbus Carl Thiem Clinic (CTK) and turn it into a university hospital. The Federal Cartel Office sees no concerns and has approved the planned acquisition, the authority announced today. CTK Cottbus and its subsidiaries are currently managed by the city.

Federal Cartel Office President Andreas Mundt said according to the announcement: “CTK in southeastern Brandenburg has a very high market share, as there are only smaller and widely dispersed competitors, but no additional market share will be added here because the state of Brandenburg is not yet active in the hospital market was.”

States should ensure that providers at non-profit private and municipal hospitals are not indirectly disadvantaged compared to teaching hospitals, it was said.

The country wants to build a medical university in Lusatia, with the first students expected to start in 2026. According to the state government, investments of around 3.7 billion euros are planned until 2038 – more than half of which will be funded by the federal government . © dpa/aerzteblatt.de
