Phases of construction
The implementation of the first construction phase (school building including boarding home, staff apartment blocks) began in the summer of 1964. The second construction phase followed in 1968 with the construction of the university clinics for paediatrics, psychiatry, child and adolescent neuropsychiatry, depth psychology and psychotherapy, and day nursery. The third construction phase consisted of an underground car park in 1970. The fourth, and also the most comprehensive construction phase (the main building and annexes) was commenced in 1974.
In January 1991 the first medical care unit, namely the Department for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, opened for treatment. It was followed in succession by the commissioning of all the university clinics and institutes, starting with the conservative departments, then the surgical departments.
