ISO certification – guarantee for your safety
Rudolfinerhaus is Austria’s first fully quality certified hospital. Our certificate according to ISO 9001 was first awarded in 2007 and renewed in 2019. Safety is the main reason for our certification. Medical and nursing services are as important as contact with patients, continuous training of our staff, contingency planning and the best possible integration of all internal and external processes.
The ISO process and certification guarantees transparency and exposes potential optimizations which support continuous improvements. The creation of our quality management system showed the soundness of the majority of our processes. Our attending physicians are also included in quality management. The quality management system according to ISO 9000 extends to our Campus as well, where it is a major part in the theoretical and practical training of nursing. Quality certification of hospital and Campus are unique in Austria.
Most modern green building
Thanks to the complete renovation in 2020, Rudolfinerhaus has become a hospital of the future. Behind the historic façade, we constructed a „green building“. We do not use fossile fuels and noisy cooling towers on the roof became a thing of the past. The green bulding with 156 beds (two thirds of which in private rooms) joins the amenities of a luxury hotel with most modern medical technology such as the digital patient file which is accessed by tablet. Thus, all patient data are available for doctors and staff at a fingertip.
Award for sustainability and protection of the environment
Reflecting our constant thrive for ecological and economical management and to the sustainable use of resources, Rudolfinerhaus was awarded the label „Oeko Business Betrieb” (ecological enterprise) by the government of Vienna.
To achieve this, we invested in reducing energy and water consumption as well as waste reduction and succeeded in significantly minimizing our carbon footprint.
By concluding our modernisation project in 2020, sustainability improved even more. Modern building technologies such as modular cooling and underfloor heating at the same time increase energy efficiency and improve comfort for our patients. Using remote cooling brought additional energy savings. Recovered rain water is used for the irrigation of our park.
