The Altona Children’s Hospital (AKK) is the first child-only clinic where a central emergency and admission ward has been set up. Up to 10 minors can be monitored and cared for there if necessary, especially in the evening and at night so as not to disturb those sleeping on the wards. Depending on the severity of the case, they are then sent home or sent to the appropriate ward for further treatment the next morning. The rooms are nicely furnished, have an extra bed for an accompanying person and an en-suite bathroom. In addition, there are two isolation rooms with sluice rooms and direct access from the outside for patients who are suspected of having particularly infectious diseases.
The building itself is set apart from the existing structure by a midsection and is divided into two building structures. The façade is organic to give a special design to the all-important inner courtyard of the children’s hospital, now reduced in size by the new building.
