ENABLING THE DELIVERY OF WORLD-CLASS HEALTHCARE IN THE MIDDLE EAST

CASE STUDY | HAMAD MEDICAL CITY, QATAR

OUR CLIENTS CHALLENGE

Hamad Medical City is the biggest health development in the world. The project will provide three new state of the art facilities and a research centre with more than 250,000 sqm of new accommodation opening in 2014-15. Our involvement is in providing project and design management services to this immensely ambitious project.

POSITIVE OUTCOMES
1. The hospitals will have 100% single rooms and en-suite facilities to enhance patient safety and culturally appropriate privacy 2. All 34 theatres have the same design platform to maximise long term exibility and safe operation 3. The optimum use of ceiling mounted hoists in the medicine and rehabilitation hospital will improve patient safety and the risk of injury to staff during the movement of patients 4. The space planning of the facilities is ensuring immediate access for emergency cases to the point of required specialism e.g. medicine and obstetrics with advanced procedure rooms to avoid additional patient movements to theatre where possible 5. A reduction in hazards with independent design manager input for trafc ows anD waste management routes to ensure safe operation is to the fore from the outset.

We have taken the opportunity to use EC Harris as our partners in project managing our large and complex commissioning project. Their willingness to transfer knowledge adds value and contributes to building our own capacity and capability.
