The first symbolic cut in the ground was made with a giant spade at the Baden Canton Hospital (KSB) on 31 August. The 450 million Swiss franc project now enters the construction phase, which should be complete in 2022.
In her address, Christine Nickl-Weller emphasised the ambitious architectural goals that Nickl & Partner Architekten set themselves in the planning of the 400-bed hospital.
Nickl & Partner won the competition for new construction of the canton hospital in 2016. It replaces a hospital building built in 1978 that no longer met contemporary standards and work processes.
