Kuwait Children's Hospital
SSH was appointed by Kuwait’s Ministry of Health and Ministry of Public Works, in association with global architects HKS, to provide a study and design for the new Children’s Hospital on a design-award-construct basis.
Kuwait’s newest tertiary children’s hospital will be the largest hospital of its kind in the world. It features a total of 792 beds that will suit all medical needs and methods of treatment. The 300,000 sqm hospital is located within the Al Sabah Specialty Medical Area, in Al-Shuwaikh.
The unique design concept has been delivered with a futuristic hospital design theme, comprising innovative and functional design that incorporates state-of-the-art technology and energy conservation. The Kuwait Children’s Hospital will be built using the highest standards of construction, materials and equipment. The hospital will provide a welcoming, comfortable, stress-free and home-like environment for its patients and their respective families.
The facility also includes diagnostic and treatment centres to complement all tertiary care services, along with other non-clinical support and public departments. Non-healthcare structures, functions and services are also part of the scope which includes 2,400 car parking spaces, a helipad to support emergency air transport services and a day care centre for infants, pre-toddlers and pre-schoolers, dedicated to children of staff working at the proposed facility. In addition, five shelters for civil defence were requested.
