Smart hospital - the Viennese model
Vienna North Hospital is an important step in reconstructing the Viennese hospital landscape. The hospital will be one of seven specialized hospitals in Vienna. Establishing a partly new set of priorities in the other hospitals combined with shifting existing hospitals and departments from their present location to the Vienna North Hospital is improving the health care services significantly.
The new hospital provides a light flooded atmosphere as well as an optimal solution for the workflow and organizational processes. The design combines the advantages of a pavilion-type hospital with those of a central hospital. The modular expandability ensures the state of the art for many years. The invitingly shaped foyer area featuring a spacious piazza connects the hospital with the urban space while at the same time providing optimal protection against noise on account of the building’s position.
The rooms are designed exclusively as single and twin rooms, which reflect the high standard finish of the inpatient wards. Light-flooded atriums, roof gardens and extensive green spaces combine to make the hospital an oasis of well-being for patients and employees alike. The landscape design unites the ideas of well-being, healing, growth and recovery in a holistic overall concept. The overall concept provides clarity, optimal functional processes, a clear organization, short distances for the nursing staff to get to the patients, and complex networks. The 800-bed hospital will unite state-of-the-art standards with as much comfort as possible.
