The KABEG regional hospital Villach is the second largest hospital in Carinthia and offers services in all medical disciplines. With over 1,700 employees it is the biggest single employer in Villach and it has received multiple awards for its work in personnel and organizational development, among them the European Language Label. The regional hospital Villach maintains local and international co-operations and takes part in European projects in the healthcare sector.
The staff of more than 1,700, which are currently employed by the LKH Villach, includes 53 staff members with non-Austrian citizenship (from Germany, Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Belgium, Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland and Serbia). The number of employees with an international background is, however, higher.
Employee satisfaction and support are taken very seriously by the LKH Villach and are an important topic in an increasingly international healthcare market. Membership of the CIC allows us to support staff members with an international background better, both on the corporate and the individual level. It enables the company to enhance its intercultural competence and offers the employees and their families extended advice, support and activities such as holiday childcare for children and language swaps.
