Chronicle Clinic Traunstein

The history of Traunstein hospitals dates back to medieval times. A leper or infirm was originally constructed in the suburb of the Holy Spirit and is documented evidence already 1431st We will limit ourselves in our little historical perspective, however, essentially on this hospital, which is located below the Guntramshügel.

Decided in 1909 the town council of Traunstein, the definition of a basic program for the construction of a new municipal hospital. Already in July 1912 purchased the large plot at 5.73 Tagwerk Guntramshügel for 18,000 marks from the castle owner Eugene Rosner. The new building was built in the period from 18 April 1912 until the end of July 1914. The total cost amounted to 16,263.86 marks. The outbreak of World War I, however, prevented the assignment of civilian patients and only after the dissolution of the imprisoned, the new hospital in 1919 of his civilian provision could be fed.

Almost simultaneously with the construction of the new hospital, another representative building was completed in Traunstein, which should in future play an important role as a hospital and the First and Second World War, a similar fate as the hospital was given, namely the Prince Ludwig Home. The Society for merchant and recreational homes, Wiesbaden Traunstein had been selected for the first of its holiday resorts, and it was built on the outer Wasserburger Street on the site of today's school center. 25 years after the start of World War I broke out in 1939, the second global war and again, the hospital and Prince Louis were converted home in reserve hospitals. During the summer months of 1945, the American military government released the building for the civilian population, but only in the year 1947 some reorganization could take place the Traunsteiner hospitals.
The hospital at the Cuno Niggl Street (named after the founder of a hospital beneficium) housed the Department of Surgical and Gynecological and Obstetric Department.
As more departments a Department of Oto-Rhino-patient department and an X-ray diagnosis and radiotherapy were connected. The Prinz-Ludwig-Heim was the subject inside medicine.

Even in the 50 years, a new construction and renovation of the hospital in the town of Traunstein conversation, but only in the City Council meeting of 5 was April 1963 after the starting gun was unanimous. On 15 August 1963 was opened between the Cuno Niggl Hospital and the railway line Traunstein-Trostberg a large construction site. It envisaged the creation of 420 beds, including the old hospital.
In early 1967 then saw the merger of the two houses. In 1967, began construction of the new tract function was finished in 1970 so far that the operating rooms, radiology department and the nursery of their future use could be supplied. The remaining modifications were made in 1970/71. The Prinz-Ludwig Heim had thus fulfilled his task. In February and March 1972 the building was demolished.

But in 1984 the bulldozers rolled back to the hospital grounds, as on 8 October began the demolition of the old Cuno Niggl Hospital. It had to make way for a modern extension with a bed and a functional wing. Already on 29 March 1985 was topping out ceremony of the 1st Construction phase. In October 1988 the functional area could be put into operation. It contains the control room, the central warehouse, which Bettenzentrale, the operating suite, anesthesia, endoscopy, an ambulance with Liegendkrankenvorfahrt the radiology department, the urological outpatient clinic and the hangar for the rescue helicopter "Christoph 14".

During the year 1989, the phase 2, was completed. In it are a bed and the house physical therapy and a dining room for employees, which is now used as a patient and visitor cafeteria.
For example, a hospital was the second level of care, with a total of 490 beds. Hence the establishment of a children's ward (paediatrics) was become possible, which started 1987 states work.

From 1991 to 1994 was in a 3rd Phase, a new functional area for intensive therapy, nuclear medicine, cardiology and ECG created. In it there are also a new kitchen and just needs a new, larger archive. As part of this construction project and the entrance and reception area was redesigned.
