After only eight months building time the extension of the St. Barbara Hospital in Gladbeck will open today. To increase the bed capacity, a new three storey cross building now connects the north with the south wing of the existing building and provides short connections and optimal availability for all rooms. Apart from a disciplinary admission unit, 72 new inpatient beds are created as well as a new neurological unit and internal medicine. With this extension the builder Katholischen Kliniken Emscher Lippe GmbH together with the company group St. Augustinus Gelsenkirchen GmbH meet their mutual goal to offer an excellent clinical care in Gelsenkirchen, Gladbeck and Bottrop. Thanks to the completey prefabricated modules including preinstalled bathrooms the building time was enormously shortened and a high quality standard was achieved. Moving in the new building in the St. Barbara Hospital can take place as planned.
