“PROJECT PATIENT WARD”
Official Ceremony in October 2009
The final handover, final accounts and official opening by our Boardmember Dr. Christoph Knoblauch was done in autumn 2009. The projected costs of CHF 170 000.– were met and the project "Patient Ward" could be successfully completed at a cost of € 108 690.–.
August 2007 – the conversion is complete!
All worked out well and the reactions of the employees and the patients expressed it all, perfect. The new wards are perfectly suited for the daily routine of the hospital, they are clearly arranged, bright and pleasant to work in and ideally suited to the needs of the patients.
In 1995 Pro Phalombe funded a development plan, which analysed the structures of the hospital Phalombe. As a result of this study it was realised, that the most urgent need was the construction of a separate children's ward and in 2002 this was successfully completed.
The next logical step after this completion was the reconstruction of the 25 to 45 year old general wards. These premises were in dire need of renovation and optimization. The vacant space of the old children's ward was fully integrated into these renovations.
