“NOTTWIL – for better medicine”
This is our guiding principle as we move into the future. We focus on the three medical fields of spinal cord injury, back, and respiratory care. In addition to reimbursements from insurance companies, we receive additional funds for this from the SPF and from the solidarity group. This is associated with a special performance mandate that we can only fulfil properly if we provide different medicine in these three medical fields: comprehensive medicine, holistic medicine, or in short, medicine that is better than other medicine. The three medical fields of Spinal cord injury, Back, and Respiratory care are complemented by Acute treatment and Rehabilitation for Life as well as by Participation, Research, and Management. These nine letters in bold represent both the SPC and our CUBE management concept.
