ATP health and lifeline: Midwives in the area of buildings for the health sector
Frankfurt, 25th June 2015 – The 5th “Hospital Buildings of the Next Generation” Congress illustrated the prospects for hospital buildings of the present and the future. In his lecture, Siegfried Loewenguth, Managing Director of lifeline, the Company for Organizational Planning in the Health Sector, addressed the importance of coordinating process management and design.
Together with ATP health, lifeline was commissioned to design a Nuclear Medicine Center at Obninsk near Moscow. In his lecture, Loewenguth described the experience gained from the project: “lifeline was involved in the project development from the very start and almost operated as the implementer of the investor’s ideas – an ideal situation for a consultant”. For example, the key information for a strategic positioning was gathered in a feasibility study. These facts then provided valuable input for the work of ATP health, the expert for the integrated design of hospital buildings.
Norbert Helmus, Managing Director of ATP health, also participated in the Congress and moderated the block on the subject of “Interior Architecture and Design”. A total of 40 speakers from the USA, Europe and Germany reported in plenary sessions and 12 thematic blocks about current and practice-oriented developments in such areas as medical technology and hygiene, hospital building and equipment, the green hospital, the digital hospital, technology and environmental and legal subjects.
