Abu Dhabi, UAE
The Zayed Military Hospital is located in the Al Shahama area as part of the Zayed Military City, northeast of Abu Dhabi, UAE. The new hospital is designed as a 260 bed facility, including an ICU, Burn ICU, Cardiac Care Unit, medical, surgical and pediatric beds. There is a psychiatric center located in a separate building, bringing the total number of beds to 300 overall.
Overall, the Zayed Military Hospital campus is 121,000 square meters of 56 hectares of land. The campus includes an ambulatory care component, as well as housing for staff and physicians. Between surface lots and structured parking, there are spots available for 1,500 vehicles, serving visitors, patients and employees.
The project is designed with a view towards growth, both inside and outside. Internal expansion designs have made it simple to change a one bed room into a double room. Externally, the building is designed to expand horizontally, expanding the hospital to accommodate 500 beds.
