The University Hospital of Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH) follows a guiding principle: Supreme quality standards for patients and staff can be met only if efficiency and expansion potentials are at the highest level. Therefore, in 2015 the new construction, reconstruction, and renovation of the UKSH were begun. Here indispensable: VAMED in partnership with BAM Germany.

This commitment is based on a tailored concept for the construction, operation, and maintenance of the UKSH buildings as well as financing for the next 30 years. The core of the concept is centralization of the most important resources – packaged into a distinctive architectural and infrastructural highlight.

Thus, on the campuses in Kiel and Lübeck highly attractive interdisciplinary central clinics with short distances, short waiting times, and short residence times are being built. In intensive care, modular structures in economically ideal size will ensure maximum efficient staffing. In the structurally-functionally surgery center, processes are optimized and changeover times reduced, so that the number of operating rooms and hence the infrastructure cost can be reduced. Or logistics: By expansion of automatic transport systems and the installation of a pneumatic tube system, the costs of supply and disposal logistics are going to be reduced to a minimum.

The UKSH as the largest university hospital in the north is structurally designed to conform to the high standards of patient care, research, and teaching. The foundation of the forward-looking

orientation of the UKSH is our “Medical Structure Concept”, which has analyzed the health-related development of the coming years. Forecasts and capacity calculations take demographic change and medical progress into account. These data form the basis for the design of the construction master plan. These and many other innovative features provide scientists, doctors, nurses, and therapists with ideal conditions for optimal patient care, and all patients with high quality of recovery in a 21st century hospital.

Centralization Buildings on the Campus of Lübeck

For the Clinic Campus Lübeck, the structural inventory is completed, and at the same time, the basic structure reorganized: The existing Central Hospital is extended by a new building with a gross floor area of ​​65,000 square meters on six floors. The clinics previously accommodated in temporary structures are going to be integrated in this central complex, including:

  • Interdisciplinary emergency room
  • General surgery
  • Urology
  • Diagnostics units
  • A surgical area with 20 rooms, including hybrid OR
  • ICUs with a total of 98 beds
  • 5 normal care units with 198 beds
  • 3 optional service units with 87 beds
  • On the roof of the new building, additionally a helipad is going to be created.

 Until completion of the Clinical Center of Lübeck, more than 200 companies, planners and contractors as well as suppliers will be active at the site, many of which are from the region.
