Ng Teng Fong General Hospital Recognized by the International Academy for Design & Health
The HOK-designed Ng Teng Fong General Hospital in Singapore has been recognized by the International Academy for Design & Health with three awards at its annual ceremony in Vienna.
The hospital was named the winner in the Salutogenic Design Project and Sustainable Urban and Built Environment categories and named highly commendable in the International Healthcare Project above 40,000-sq.-m. category. The International Academy for Design & Health is the world’s leading advocacy program, recognizing professional excellence in the research and practice of designing healthy environments.
