About Foundation of Cellitinnen e.V.
The Cologne-based Catholic Foundation of the Cellite Sisters is a registered charitable association (e.V.) which emerged from the Cooperative of the Cellite Sisters according to the Rule of St. Augustine, after the religious community of the Cellite Sisters had placed their charitable works into secular hands.
To date, four somatic hospitals as well as a specialist clinic for psychiatry belong to the Foundation of the Cellitinnen e.V. Furthermore, the range of services includes two medical supply centres, fourteen geriatric care and nursing facilities with over a thousand places, an outpatient nursing service, a service company and a day care centre for children. One of these hospitals, the Augustinerinnen hospital Severinsklösterchen, is operated by the Augustinerinnen Cologne gGmbH hospital which is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Foundation of Cellitinnen e.V. and now also houses the St. Hildegardis Hospital.
