"We have taken into account health policy developments in both areas – developments that increase the need for mental health care and monitoring, as well as better care beds for the older generation." 56 beds are available to patients for two hotspots.

"The hospital team has always been actively involved in making the necessary changes. Finally, the future of the hospital depends on whether and how it responds to developments that affect medical care," said Prettner, thanking Diakonie's rector, Hubert Stotter. and KH Waiern Board of Trustees over Gabriel Primarius Gabriel Andre-Tschinkel, Marko Buttazoni, Arnold Maier and Walter Pansi for close cooperation with the Carinthian Province. "We have only succeeded in a concerted effort to maintain medical care near the Carinthian home population," Prettner noted.
