Join Our Webinar on Challenges and Chances in Hospital Planning & Design!

When it comes to the design of hospitals, patient outcome, staff satisfaction and a healing environment for both parties is of major importance. Especially in critical care areas, a smart design concept can contribute to a faster healing process on the one hand – and promote a more comfortable yet (cost-) efficient workflow on the other.

In order to make those complex hospital planning projects more successful, several challenges can be overcome at a very early stage of the design process.

Don’t miss the chance to join our two experts Magnus Nickl, Healthcare Architect at Nickl & Partner Architects Switzerland, and Prof. Dr. Axel S. Merseburger, director at the clinic  for urology at the university hospital in Luebeck, Germany, discussing the following topics:

  • Challenges and chances in hospital planning from the architects’ perspective
  • Challenges and chances in hospital planning from the clinicians’ perspective
  • Practical insights
  • Possible solutions for medical workplaces in acute care units

Prof. Dr. Axel S. Merseburger

Prof. Dr. Axel Merseburger is the director of the clinic for urology at the university hospital in Lübeck, Germany, and is an experienced surgeon within that field. He will talk about the requirements on the infrastructure of operating theatres and care units within hospital building projects from the clinicians’ perspective. The complexity of workflows, ongoing digitalization, and the need for patient and staff safety are just a few of the challenges that must be reflected in the clinical workplace design.
