After evaluating several alternative sites during the project development phase, we chose an empty office building that was being offered for rent, with good traffic connections and a central location in downtown Munich. In addition to the benefits of the central location, the above-average ceiling heights and flexible former open-plan office spaces were convincing reasons to choose the building on Sonnenstraße. German Haimerl Architekten supported Isarklinik AG during the negotiations with the landlord, while at the same time starting the planning process. The facilities in the first building section include a large OR area with 13 operating rooms, an intensive care station, and inpatient wards with a total of 100 beds. After the first building section opened in 2008, additional inpatient wards with more than 100 beds were built, along with a medical center housing various medical specialty departments for outpatient and inpatient care, and were gradually put into operation as well. Today, the Isar Medical Center is one of the “Leading Hospitals of the World,” and treats patients from all over the world.
