Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
General Hospital
24,000 m2
2010

Fewer Harrington & Partners in partnership with its partner companies under the Pivotal International brand applied their extensive medical experience to assist the client in establishing a brief for this project, which will meet the highest international standards.

A hospital is a complex, contradictory building type, a system of systems. It is a dense collection of people, equipment, and supplies. There is no one definition that sufficiently sums up the many types of hospitals. However, established baseline principles and standards do exist for the planning and design. These criteria are shaped by local, regional, national and increasingly, by international building codes. Due to vast variations across cultures and across geographic regions, it is always a challenge to apply specific criteria in the successful design of a hospital.

The project consists of a General Hospital containing the following departments

 

  • Entrance Atrium
  • Concourse with reception/ café
  • Management suite
  • 160 inpatient bedroom bed wing
  • 25 outpatient bedroom
  • Swift care Accident and Emergency suite
  • 25 Private Consultants suites
  • 6 Surgical Theatres with full recovery suites and day patient wards
  • Independent blood analysis centre
Diagnostics suites designed included

 

  • MRI, ultrasound and CAT scanning
  • Specialist X-ray department
  • Radio-therapy bunkers

All were delivered along with full treatment and consultation areas all integrated into the Hospital but fully independent accessed. The adjoining business and conference centre was designed to facilitate a dedicated training area for medical related uses.
