Jobs & Training

Innovative employer in a contemplative environment: the PZNW and Gronau in professional and personal point of view are a good meeting point.

Liveable environment, innovative workplace

Gronau is located 90 km from Osnabrück, 60 km from Münster and situated directly next to the Dutch border. Gronau has approximately 46.000 inhabitants, and it has a nice small river, the Dinkel. Moreover Gildehauser Venn is a tranquil little town in itself. Gronau has become well-known across Europe because of the opening of the rock ’n’ pop museum in 2004. The museum is situated in the Kesselhalle, which was Mathieu van Deldena’s weaving mill before.  That we have chosen this location was not accidental: Udo Lindenberg originates from Gronau; at the end of April, since 1986, the biggest performers of Jazz & Blues have met annually at the Jazz Festival. The Rock Festival ’Auf die Ohren’ attracts the legends of this genre.

In this environment you can live healthy – and work well. The St. Antonius- Hospital Gronau, the Prostate Center Northwest, as well as the European Robotic Institute (ERI) are offering exciting prospects and interesting challenges for this in an innovative environment, and in a motivated team. Of course our training offering is equally attractive.

You need to understand what you are doing

The results of the surgeries made by the da Vinci System are really convincing. They require special training and experience. Therefore the surgeons first should build the necessary skills with the help of the simulations and secure their knowledge before they actually operate. For this purpose we have founded the European Robotic Institute (ERI) in Gronau as a platform of knowledge exchange and transfer. During our trainings and events we exchange our knowledge about minimally invasive and robotic surgery. Nurses, assistants, surgeons and even corporate customers can train and test their skills in the ERI since August 2012, which is equipped with the latest simulation and presentation equipment. The ERI’s offer includes simulations, practical trainings, and online trainings for the pre- and post graduated courses. The training courses are certified, so they offer a high level quality for the participants and they can be charged officially. So, the ERI’s goal is not just the dissemination of the robotic technique, but also to increase the quality of care.


We are always happy to see new faces. Job vacancies can be found on the website of the St. Antonius Hospital in Gronau.
