Medical and Health Care

Medical and health care are among the paramount growth and key industries in Würzburg. More than 11,000 people work in this sector which contributes more than thirteen percent to the gross value added in the Würzburg region.  Many of our region's medium-sized companies occupy some highly specific niche markets with their products, services and solutions.

That's one of the reasons why a great number of them have grown into global players. The Virion/Serion institute, for example, is one of the leading developers and producers of in vitro diagnostics for infectious diseases. The biopharmaceutical company  Vasopharm specializes in the research of innovative therapeutics for the treatment of cerebrovascular diseases and their consequences. Well-established in Würzburg for many decades, the Kneipp group produces herbal medicines and dietary supplements as well as bath additives and body care products. The company follows the philosophy of world-famous hydrotherapist Sebastian Kneipp (1821 – 1897).
