The patients in the Osnabruck region are to receive optimum medical services, which is why agn was entrusted with the expansion and restructuring of the operating theater department, including a surgical and internal medicine intensive care unit and a central sterilization unit. In the summer of 2015 agn was awarded the contract following a Europe-wide tender. The construction measures included the refurbishment of the
central surgery department and the expansion of nine out of a total of 11 (optional 13) operating theaters. The surgical intensive care unit and the intermediate care division with a total of 24 beds will be constructed anew on the same level and will have direct access to the operating theater through the wake-up room (holding area). A new central sterilization unit will be constructed on a story above the surgical department that will meet the rising requirements of the in-house departments. It was a special requirement that the measures should be carried out during ongoing operations at four construction sections in total.
