The project of the “Al Jalila Children Specialty Hospital” in Dubai is a great opportunity to review the traditional canons of the Hospital design, applying innovative concepts where the architecture is strongly integrated with the child healing process. In fact, the main objective of excellence in healthcare services is supported with some architectural principles that enhance the therapeutic performance of the institution.
These principles can be listed below:
• a friendly hospital concept avoiding the usual division between healthcare structures and community.
• a rational functional layout
• single bed rooms
• well connected departments reducing the time of connection between them
• application of international standards
• a Family centred structure that allows the continuous integration between patient and family during the entire care process
• a child friendly structure
The “Al Jalila Children Specialty Hospital” design approach accomplishes these principles through the realization of a horizontal model, allowing a strong integration between services and wards units.
In addition, a flexible structure permits changes and expandability in the future and therefore to satisfy evolving medical needs. All of this will allow to offer the same quality of healthcare services.
The integration of nature is not only intended for decoration but mainly to make it a relevant element for healing treatments.
The children are intended as unique and individuals with their own specialized needs. The new hospital creates for them a kid and family size place in a safety environment, encouraging the family support, stimulating children senses and constant education.
Balanced spaces, greenery and fresh air ventilation, contributes for a playful and supportive atmosphere creating a feeling between child and hospital. Playing as a way of pain reduction is essential for emotive, stress and anxiety control using innovative interactive technologies.
A place that stimulates the participation and the imagination of the children in terms of visual sense, touchable and interactive surfaces, sinuous and fantastic shapes, integrating music, art, nature and pets as a health and wellness encourage. Motivating skin to skin relationships, this design becomes also an important tool for the staff that can operate in a pleasant environment.
This innovative layout contains spaces dedicated to involve family and caregivers allowing them to continue their normal life sitting beside the child.
The use of natural light, greenery and healing landscape guarantee high level of indoor air quality enhancing noise barriers and creates a pleasant environment. The nature is accessible through the gardens and all the internal circulation is easy and intuitive way finding.
The Energy Saving strategies for this building have been treated using different constructive solutions that allows sensible reductions in the global energy consumption. For example the active wall facade system using the HVAC aspiration system creates an internal flow inside the cell facade maintaining the room temperature and comfort stable during the day reducing major cost for energy generation, especially considering the temperature average in this country. Gardens in the terraces and in the top roof will provide a great sun insulation with the added value of pleasant areas for inpatients and staff outdoor activities.
More than 5000 sqm of solar panels located in the roof of the hospital and covering the parking places, will provide enough energy to satisfy the autonomy of certain systems of the building. In addition, the water treatment concept, will provide also the possibility to reduce the general need reusing the water for other purposes like toilet reuse or irrigation.
"Al Jalila Children Specialty Hospital" will provide tertiary and quaternary highly specialized health care assistance for 200 inpatients, 40 intensive care inpatients plus 6 dialysis beds in a total area of 67.000 sqm of new structure completely surrounded by greenery and gardens. Located in an area of 98.000 sqm inside the exiting Al Wasl Hospital Campus, this stand alone structure is composed by 1 basement plus four levels providing also accommodations for families and three royal suites dedicated for the Royal Family.
More than 50.000 sqm of external terraces and gardens dedicated for public and inpatients and 210 underground parking places and 260 external parking places complete the general project.
Much thanks for barrak .

^^ Cool! I have a feeling this will be built on the grounds of Rashid Hospital, in Oud Metha, adjacent to the existing hospital, using all the vacant land between Rashid Hospital and the DHCC.....

Looks like I was completely wrong. It's being built on the grounds of Al Wasl Hospital, along Sheikh Rashid Road, right opposite Wafi City, on the Northern approach to Garhoud Bridge.

The director general of the Dubai Health Authority (centre) inspects the model of Al Jalila Children's Specialty Hospital after signing an agreement in Dubai with Al Futtaim Carillion for undertaking the second phase of construction. Dubai: The Dubai Health Authority on Tuesday signed a contract for the construction of a super-speciality hospital for children, the first of its kind in the whole region.
Al Jalila Hospital is named after the daughter of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The 200-bed hospital will cost Dh673 million to build and will have several centres of excellence dedicated to cancer care, cardiology, neurology and mental health.
The contract for the construction of the hospital was signed with Al Futaim Carillion. It will be built on a sprawling 100,000 square metres within the grounds of Al Wasl Hospital. The children-friendly hospital will "redifine paediatric care in the UAE and the wider region," said Qadhi Al Murooshid, director general of DHA, making the announcement.
"The Hospital will be an advanced medical facility that will attract "medical tourism" to the emirate and help improve the level and quality if healthcare services for chidren," he said. It is expected to be completed in 26 months.
He quoted World Health Organisation (WHO) studies and said that many health complications in children can be avoided if conditions such as diabetes, obesity and arthritis are diagnosed at an early age. "These reports reveal that children suffering from health complications during an early age tend to suffer from the same conditions throughout thier adult life," he said.
The design of the Hospital has already won international honours, including the Future Projects--Health Award in barcelona. The design, architecture and decor aim to stimulate the participation and imagination of children through visual aids, interactive touch-surfaces and integrating arts, music and nature as part of the overall healthcare strategy, said a senior DHA official.
