operating theatres at the Israelite Hospital

Client Israelitisches Krankenhaus Hamburg
Project location Orchideenstieg 14, Hamburg, D
Key figures GFA 670 m2
Service General planning LPH 1 - 8
Period  Since 2020

After two operating theatres at the Israelite Hospital (Israelitischen Krankenhaus – IK-H) were modernised a few years ago – the central sterile supply system was renewed and the associated processes were redesigned – we have been entrusted with the task of redesigning two further operating theatres as part of the necessary renewal of the building’s technical systems, especially the ventilation systems. The aim is to adapt the ancillary areas to the increased number of operating theatres and their processes and, in the process, increase the floor space of the operating theatre department by extending the building to a lofty height. In the process, the operating theatres to be redesigned must be brought up to a current standard that will allow robotics in the operating theatre in future, especially for laparoscopic techniques.

The IK-H is one of the leading clinics in Germany in the field of minimally invasive surgery, also called laparoscopic surgery in the abdominal area. The use of robotics requires more space in the operating theatre, but also additional ancillary areas for supplies, and will in future enable up-to-date surgical technology at the IK-H that is gentler on patients, while at the same time improving the working conditions for the operating theatre staff.
