Health Centre Port Büsum is part of the wider network of PORT registered centres (the Community Health Center Port Hohenstein is another example). It is owned by the municipality and provides multi-professional, continuous care to its community of app. 8000 inhabitants and app. 6000 tourists every year. Motivated by the shortage of primary care physicians, Port Büsum became the first community-owned practice in Germany. Büsum is a rural area where 60% of the population and neighbouring towns is 60 years or older.
