New eldercare center in Saanen project is underway
Important milestones on the way to create new housing for elderly people in Saanen took place recently. The demolition of the Thomet-house started and the official groundbreaking ceremony for construction of the new eldercare center in Saanen also took place. President of the Alterszentrum Saanen AG, Bethli Küng, thanked all those involved in the actualization of the project so far. Specific mention was to the team at Heinz Fahrni Architects for their constructive and pleasant cooperation, the friends of the Hospital Saanen, Markus Iseli for his efficient management of the Alterszentrum Saanen AG, the public who voted for the construction of the project and last but not least Georges Pereira for the generous financial support. Now Bethli Küng is next looking forward to the inauguration ceremony and hopes that the planned opening date for the end of 2013 will be achieved.
