The Hospital Klagenfurt Wörthersee is the third largest hospital in Austria with about 1,200 beds, 62,000 inpatients and 527,000 outpatient treatments each year. It’s located in the center of Klagenfurt and was ready for use in 2010. Approximately 327 million euros were spent on the 95,000 m² large Hospital. The landscaping was rearranged to create a park around the hospital and a river was relocated to create space for the building.
The overall structure of LKH Klagenfurt consists basically of two units, a Surgical Medical Center (CMZ) and the Supply and Disposal Center (VEZ). In the Supply and Disposal Center (VEZ) a large kitchen and a fully automatic laundry are situated. Further technical innovations are the Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) system and a pneumatic tube system (PTS).
The Hospital Klagenfurt management is very keen on exploring innovative solutions and state-of-the-art medical technology, optimized and multi-site use of the facilities and rooms (operating theaters, examination and treatment rooms, nursing stations and logistics areas) has given this hospital pioneering status throughout Europe.
