Groundbreaking Celebrated for New Building at Chemnitz Hospital
The groundbreaking shovels were out on March 8 in Chemnitz, Germany, to mark the beginning of construction on the expansion project at Chemnitz Hospital. This is the initial step for the large-scale expansion and renovation aimed at centralizing departments at the Flemmingstraße location.
When the expansion is complete, emergency care, neurology, ophthalmology, orthopedics and hand surgery, head and neck surgery, and ear, nose and throat medicine will be housed centrally at Flemmingstraße.
The expansion will be connected at a new main entrance hall. It will have a total of five stories with the two-level building base and two three-story towers connected by a central circulation hub, while connecting corridors and skyways will provide access to all levels of the existing buildings.
The new building will be supplemented by an open 150-space multi-story parking ramp, which will be located on the south side of the building, directly on Flemmingstraße, easing patient and visitor access.
