Bridges for Birth (B4B)

Cross-border cooperation Lower Austria – Slovakia

The border regions of Austria and Slovakia are growing ever closer together, even in the health care sector.

Due to the partnership between the Hainburg clinical centre and the University Children's Hospital Bratislava, neonatal emergencies can be transferred from Hainburg to the nearby University Children's Hospital Bratislava if necessary.

Aside from patient information, the potential for future cooperation was also identified so as to establish long-term cross-border provision of health care.
