This world-class specialty hospital is intended to function as a standalone facility and as part of D.Y. Patil University’s medical teaching campus. It will meet the health needs of India’s emerging middle and upper-middle class while generating revenue to support the university’s public charity hospital.
The stone and glass exteriors communicate a progressive, contemporary image for the medical complex. A sculptural, environmentally responsive, glass-fiber-reinforced concrete screen over the curtain wall shades the inpatient tower.
Hospitality-influenced interiors enhance the patient experience in both the state-of-the-art, specialized interventional facility and the outpatient center.
Inpatient floors house units for intensive care, step-down, high-risk birthing, and general medical and surgical care. All inpatient rooms are private and same-handed, and each floor includes larger VIP rooms.
Educational and administrative facilities are on the transitional floors between the lower podium and upper inpatient zones.
At the building base, an open gateway provides a new campus entry and a gracious porte-cochere leading into the hospital and education auditorium.
