KARL STORZ Group Opened Berlin Visitor and Training Centre at Historical Empress Augusta Hospital

Together with guests from politics, business and medicine, the KARL STORZ Group celebrated the inauguration of the renovated and modernized former Empress Augusta Hospital on 10 and 11 October. The future Berlin activities of the KARL STORZ Group will thus be combined under one roof.

With the conversion and restoration of this historical edifice the family-owned business consolidates its presence in the German capital. The former Empress Augusta Hospital has now become a company site of the KARL STORZ Group. Located in the central district of Berlin Mitte, it does not only accommodate offices but also offers a modern visitor, training and conference centre on an area of 8,000 m². There the STORZ MEDICAL shock wave systems will be shown to visitors in a practical environment and will also be used intensively at all future hands-on workshops or training seminars. While the historical setting is attractive for presenting the KARL STORZ and STORZ MEDICAL product assortments, the building also offers customers and interested persons a top-grade event centre for medical meetings. It has already been chosen as the venue for the most important event in 2014, the second international shock wave conference »SHOCK WAVE Berlin« on 3 and 4 October.


During the two years of renovation, the charm of the historical building, which dates back to 1868, has been preserved while modern elements have been skilfully added. In the course of the centuries the house was used for different purposes. At last it accommodated the department of orthopaedics of the Charité hospital. Names such as Rudolf Virchow, Robert Koch, Paul Ehrlich and Ferdinand Sauerbruch represent the great history of the Berlin Charité university hospital, from where eight Nobel Prize winners in medicine started their careers. Like in the past, medicine and its application for the benefit of patients remains the central purpose of the building today. Therefore, medical history is not only preserved but will be continued in the future by the KARL STORZ Group.
