Franziska Landgraf took up the position of Director of Nursing at Charité on 1 May. She is therefore also a member of the hospital management team. The Executive Board of the Charité decided on this change after discussion in the Personnel Committee of the Supervisory Board. Franziska Landgraf thus succeeds Dr Anke Jentzsch.

Franziska Landgraf had previously been Deputy Director of Nursing since 2022. Stephanie Schönbeck, who most recently worked as a consultant to Carla Eysel, Director of Human Resources and Nursing, and previously as Deputy Nursing Centre Director, will take over this position with immediate effect.

Strengthening care in the management trio

Carla Eysel wants to use the reorganisation to further advance the achievement of the strategic goals of the healthcare professions at Charité. ‘Together with the department’s managers, Franziska Landgraf, Stephanie Schönbeck and I are working as a management team to set up the working conditions in nursing in such a way that they meet the requirements of our Charité 2030 corporate strategy of putting people at the centre. It is important to us that the healthcare professions also occupy a significant proportion of academically qualified roles in patient care and that the interprofessional cooperation of all those involved in the care of our patients is strengthened and expanded.’

She adds: ‘My focus here is on the development of nursing care in line with our strategy, on corresponding political initiatives and on the further development of the collective bargaining framework. Franziska Landgraf is responsible for operational management, the structural development of the divisions and process management, among other things. Stephanie Schönbeck is responsible in particular for academic nursing development, budget planning and nursing and project controlling. I look forward to working with her and wish my colleagues a good start!’

Commitment from all nursing teams required

Franziska Landgraf explains her priorities: ‘It is very important to me to continue shaping nursing care at the Charité with valuable impulses and to make it fit for the future. We can achieve a lot together in the nursing management team, but for me the support of our more than 5,000 professionals is fundamental. With joint ideas and commitment, we can actively promote the further development of our profession!’
