Working in a hybrid OR: Visionary medical care
Harald Maikisch is an expert on the Austrian hospital sector and will soon have four decades of experience under his belt. When he plans a hospital for the future, he always examines the best ideas for it in the here and now.
He believes that cutting-edge technology and architecture must absolutely serve the needs of the people. Today, he runs the largest hospital in the state of Vorarlberg, Austria – LKH-Feldkirch, a specialist care hospital. A hybrid operating room is at the heart of its new operating and intensive care center. Building the hybrid OR was a farsighted decision – in a very literal sense.
Staff: Attracting the best when the overall picture fits
The construction phase: Nerves of steel
“We can only attract the best staff if the overall picture fits.”Harald Maikisch Administrative Director LKH-Feldkirch, Vorarlberg, Austria
Simulation: A master plan before the quantum leap
Interdisciplinarity: Discovering ever more opportunities
“The quality of our treatment is improving because we have better imaging and can check results during the surgery itself.”Wolfgang Hofmann, MD Head of the Department of Vascular Surgery LKH-Feldkirch, Vorarlberg, Austria
Motivation: “Surely Austria‘s most beautiful OR”
