at all times. In addition to text documents, this paperless documentation of patient data and services also includes digitally filed X-ray and MR images or photographic docu- mentation of the results of the operation. Optimal patient care also includes attending to the patient outside the oper- ating room as well. Via a multimedia terminal located next to the patient's bed, the patient can interact with the clinic's staff and access everything from his own personal therapy plan, consulting and examination appointments etc. to an entertainment program of his own choice. Structured treat- ment paths provide an optimized workflow which lightens the workload of physicians and nurses. Patients in turn enjoy the comfort of a hotel stay accompanied by first-class medi- cal care. "Through the solutions provided by Siemens, we are setting a new standard for sustainability in healthcare", sums up Dr. Peter Görlich, Commercial Director of the Ethianum.


The Ethianum in Heidelberg is the first clinic in Germany that fulfills all of the criteria for a "Green+ Hospital.


"Green+ Hospitals" put into practice The energy supply of the Ethianum is ideal because of its utilization of geothermal energy; the building produces fewer emissions than conventionally built hospitals . Furthermore, all processes connected with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning were optimized in cooperation with Siemens. Decentralized panel cooling systems thus ensure that the peak-load requirement of the heating, cooling and fresh air supply systems can be met. The energy consumption of the complex was thus reduced to a minimum. With solutions it has thus realized, the Ethianum in


Heidelberg is the first clinic in Germany that fulfills all of the criteria for a "Green+ Hospital".
