As I mentioned in my first post about the sanatorium, it was opened in 1902.
In 1903, a residence for the chief physician and a farm building were constructed on the premises, and in 1906, the hospital was connected to the newly built electrical plant south of the hospital via overhead power lines.
At the same time, the capacity was raised from 60 beds to 72.
As early as 1909, the first X-Ray- and a pneumothorax-apparatus were bought for the hospital, making it a state-of-the-art facility.
In 1926, the originally leased area was bought by the order and a plan for a substantial expansion was approved. The main building received a large extension on its western side, making room for 45 more patients.
The treatment rooms in the old building had become too small and were substituted by modern operating rooms in the new building that was opened in 1927.
The sanatorium for "light" lung deseases had become a modern lung hospital with 130 beds.
