Description

The hospital is easily reached from the nearby motorway. Patients are received in a covered plaza and a restaurant/terrace area with a “tree canopy”. The central hall is a distributor and enables rapid orientation for patients and visitors. Each of the buildings has its own stairs and elevators which face the central hall and can be viewed from the information desk. The restaurant, café, bar, flowershop, shop, pharmacy and gallery on the first floor enliven the atrium area. Patient data can be instantly accessed via a digitalised document system in the ORs. Video streaming can be transferred to any of the conference or lecture rooms via internal networks. OR teams have the use of a digital navigation system for minimal invasive procedures.

SUBPROJECTS

MRT, CT Dual Source, Radiology

MRT, CT dual source, Radiology Innovative medical technology allows hospitals to optimise performance. At the ARCUS hospital, diagnosis is possible using aCT computer tomograph and 2 MRI magnetic resonance imagers, together with specialised imaging systems. The magneticresonance imager is of type Siemens Avanto, which represents the state of the art in MRI scanners. The CT delivers highly detailed, freeze-frame images of internal organs. The MRI imagers can take single, whole body images for body lengths of up to 2,05m long. This removes the need to reposition the patient. It is also possible to scan feet-first, which is an advantage for claustrophobic patients.

Operation Theatres of Orthopaedics Department, Pforzheim

Operation Room 2+3 and 4+5 are joined to form two double ORs, allowing two similar operations to be performed simultaneously in the same room, each under its own laminar flow unit. The OR teams have direct communication with one another and personnel can be flexibly deployed according to need. Patient data can be instantly accessed via a digitalised document system in the ORs. Video streaming can be transferred to any of the conference or lecture rooms via internal networks. OR teams have the use of a digital navigation system for minimal invasive procedures.

Roof With Glas Steel Structure

The concept is of a highly specialized hospital for orthopedics and emergency surgery, including various doctor’s practices and a 4 star hotel with services for patients. The connection between the city and the hospital is the central atrium which contains a kiosk, shops, a pharmacy, galeries, and a restaurant. The clear contrast between white plastered surfaces, large format black glazed wall panels, and seamless glass walls accentuates the generous, open structure of the atrium.

Sterilisation

ShortDesc: sterilisaton departement of ARCUS clinics

The preparation and sterilisation of instruments and other material is an essential part of modern hospital operation. It can be best achieved when the microbial content of the material to be sterilised is reduced to the minimum possible before the sterilisation process, by hand and machine pre-cleaning. In the ARCUS hospital, a washer-disinfector unit with ultra-sound cleaning is used, as well as 3 state of the art washerdisinfectors.After the cleaning and disinfection process, the material is sorted, packed and documented. All processes arerecorded and documented using a bar code system which allows seamless tracking and control of sterilised material. The sterilisation is carried out using steam sterilisers. Through condensation onto the cool sterile material, heat is transferred to proteins within microbes, which coagulates the proteins and kills the microbes. Sterilised material is collected and stored until use in closed cabinets. The 2 large and 2 small steam sterilisers can sterilise a total of 10 trays in 45 minutes. Sterile trays are delivered “just in time” to operating theatres.
