Giessen UKGM Teaching Hospital

The Giessen and Marburg teaching hospital (UKGM) was Germany's first private teaching hospital. 400,000 patients are treated every year at 80 clinics belonging to the hospital complex.
UKGM is Germany's third largest teaching hospital. The facility employs a workforce of 9,700 in a host of very different professions – a large number of medical staff, obviously, but also laboratory staff, physiotherapists, engineers, computer specialists and more. 

At the Giessen location, Glamox luminaires were installed in the second new building phase, which followed the construction of the new children's hospital. The new building is linked to the children's hospital.

The new development consists of a total of six wings. The central section of the new development houses all somatic departments, which had previously been spread across several locations.

Comprehensive lighting scheme
The lighting scheme includes a mix of recessed and surface mounted luminaires, as well as a number of decorative luminaires such as Glamox A20-P166. The lighting solution also includes a number of clean room luminaires in special mounting frames.

The UKGM provides a great deal of support to the relevant faculties' research areas within the medical departments at the Justus Liebig University in Giessen and the Philipps University in Marburg.
