Inselspital Bern, New construction INO 2nd stage

Since the final completion in 2012/13, the INO also houses the new Emergency Centre, the Intensive Care Unit with 40 beds, further operating rooms, and the Nuclear Medicine department.

During construction of the 2nd stage, the 1st stage remained fully and unrestrictedly operational. The interfaces between 1st and 2nd stage were successfully established. Rooms, corridors, building services, etc., were joined in several stages under full operation.

Four different laboratory facilities – a preparative lab with two radionuclide cells, a clinical radiopharmaceuticals lab, an in-vitro lab, and a multi-function lab – now provide an ideal basis for the clinic.
