Abstract

200 years Ophthalmic Hospital Erfurt - The Fischer Foundation

Blum M.
Eye Hospital, Helios Klinikum Erfurt

Purpose: In 1802 an article written by Dr Johann Friedrich Christoph Fischer was printed in the "Thüringen newspaper" in which he asked for support for the foundation of an eye hospital in Erfurt. As a matter of fact Fischer started the very same year to do cataracts in Erfurt. For more than 40 years he himself was in charge of his institution until 1845. Already in 1805 he was offered support from the prussian king and until his retirement he had the financial resources for a foundation that still existed during wold war II. In 1941 this foundation was taken over by the Erfurt city council.
Method: It was this long lasting continuity and the financial support that enabled the eye hospital to survive the second half of the 19th century with numerous changes in staff and housing. From 1906 onwards Dr. Otto Herzau took over the institution - the first "ophthalmologist".
Results: Being part of the "Medizinische Akademie" the eye hospital became included in the "Klinikum Erfurt" run by the local authorities after 1989 and was taken over by a private company.
