Ghana, 6 District Hospitals
Six hospitals for the Ministry of Health, Ghana.
Designed in a modular system, the hospitals are adaptable to local conditions, targeted to meet local needs, and designed to meet budgetary constraints. The steel-framed buildings with the walls made using a simple method of polystyrene and steel mesh, finished with spray concrete.
Each campus is arranged around a central clinical building with a network of wards and covered walkways. Ventilated by fresh air, the wards are surrounded by gardens and play areas. Allowing for potential expansion, the campus plan also provides key worker accommodation to assist the retention of staff. Large waiting zones have been created for visitors and, using a localised healthcare model that emphasises prevention, education spaces have been provided for locals to learn about issues such as child nutrition and sexual health.
