From special cancer drugs and adapted food for premature babies to sterile infusion solutions: Heidelberg University Hospital (UKHD) uses numerous products that are freshly manufactured or processed and whose handling in the UKHD's own pharmacy requires the utmost care and cleanliness. In addition to the specialist expertise of its employees, the hospital pharmacy also needs specialized usable space, so-called clean rooms, for this purpose. Medical and scientific advances in recent years have led to a steady increase in this space requirement. To ensure that the pharmacy at the UKHD can continue to take on all clinical-pharmaceutical tasks of the high-performance medical campus in Heidelberg, the state of Baden-Württemberg has invested 25 million euros in the pharmacy extension and has now officially handed over the building to the UKHD.
