(Luftwaffe Hospital)
by Henry L. deZeng IV

Also as: Lazarett d.Lw. (o)  (Luftwaffe Hospital (stationary))

The first stationary Luftwaffe hospital was opened in Wien (Vienna) on 1 February 1940 and by 1943 the Luftwaffe hospital system had some 60 hospitals in the Reich with c.32,000 beds plus an additional 36,000 beds in temporary hospitals and requisitioned buildings. In the occupied territories out side the Reich, it had 85 hospitals with a total of 110,000 beds. As the Allies drove the Wehrmacht back into the Reich in 1944, the number of Luftwaffe hospitals shrank rapidly until only 60 remained on 5 October 1944. A typical 500-bed Luftwaffe hospital had an allowance of 24 officers, 51 NCOs, 40 men, 10 officials, 69 nurses, 38 civilian employees, 2 ambulances and 1 car for a total personnel strength of 232. Until c.1 October 1943, the Lw.-Lazaretten went by the name of where they were located at the time. After that date they began using numbers. The list that follows is not definitive, but it is the most complete list so far compiled.

KStN: 5423 (L) Lw.-Lazarett (v)?
