About the sponsor
The event format hospitalconcepts – planning, building and operating medical centres, which has grown over two decades, sees itself as a growing interdisciplinary network of experts in the sense of a lively “community” that values and maintains the continuous exchange of experiences. The aim is to learn from future-oriented and innovative solutions for construction practice in the healthcare sector and to further develop them together. Since 2000, around 200 experts – health planners, architects, engineers and representatives from the fields of medicine and nursing, administration and research – have regularly gathered for two days at the end of October to discuss structural and infrastructural solutions to the challenges in the healthcare system using concrete project examples.
