An increase in the utilization of Emergency Departments (ED) of hospitals can be observed. Due to the current wave of refugees, this topic is becoming more important. A relevant part of the patients in the EDs are immigrants, so far they have not been adequately represented in health care research. This retrospective study investigates the utilization of a university ED by immigrants, regarding the number of patients categorized by sociodemographic issues, weekday and the type of referral over a period of ten years. With an annually increasing number of treatments, there is a disproportionately high increase of foreign patients. This trend will further increase and the sociodemographic structures should be taken into account regarding the emergency care reserve capacity.
