Shanghai Jiahui International Hospital is a privately owned, international-standard, and tertiary level hospital that is centrally located in the Xuhui District. At total investment of $500 million and 500 licensed beds, it is currently the largest, foreign-invested joint venture hospital in Shanghai. From design to operation, Jiahui aims to use best practices to be an internationally recognized, leading medical institution in China, providing high-quality, patient-centric, and integrated healthcare services, professional training, and clinical research.
The campus will include an inpatient bed tower, outpatient clinics, interventional suites, an emergency department, an oncology center, and other specialized uses. The first phase of the hospital will be completed in 2017 with a total of 246 beds. Phase two will bring the capacity to 500 beds.
Envisioned as a “hospital in a garden,” bringing natural light and greenery into the space was a major design goal for the project. A large, park-like central courtyard with trees, shrubbery, grasses and pathways is a key design element and will act as a primary wayfinding device within the building. Visible from most areas on the lower levels, the courtyard will be the heart of the project, giving the campus a true sense of place.
