German to English translations [PRO]
Medical - Medical (general)
German term or phrase: belegärztlich
Context: A doctor writing his resignation letter, and mentioning where he will be moving on to.

Full sentence: "Ich freue mich auf meine neue Wirkungsstätte in einer grossen Gemeinschaftspraxis mit belegärztlicher Tätigkeit im XXXXXX Krankenhaus."

I can find a very large number of German references, but nothing that gives me a real clue as to the meaning.

Any ideas?

English translation:with hospital privileges
Explanation:
He moves on to a private practice, but with hospital affiliation, i.e. he performs surgical procedures at a local hospital or his private practice is located at a hospital... He kind of rents the facilities for surgery ;-)

Belegarzt = physician with hospital privileges
Belegbetten = beds available for physicians with hospital privileges

Hope, this helps a bit ;-)
