The official start of construction for the Christian Hospital in Quakenbrück was celebrated with a symbolic ground-breaking ceremony on December 15, 2023. According to plans by Gerber Architekten, the hospital, which opened in 1977, will receive a new ward block for 110 patients with adjoining rooms and the option to extend by a further floor. The integrated sluice situations take account of the increase in infectious diseases.

The new patient rooms are arranged around a centrally located nursing service area and offer a view of the green surroundings. Two atriums provide a natural lighting situation within the new ward block. The project also includes the restructuring of a new main entrance to the central hospital and a distribution area.

This will give the Christian Hospital Quakenbrück sufficient space for modern patient care and will welcome its visitors and patients with a new, clear entrance situation in future. The colour scheme of the façade of the new ward block is a deliberate reference to the previous psychiatric and psychosomatic projects that have already been implemented. We are delighted to be helping to shape the hospital in Quakenbrück once again with this project.
