Ba Hospital, Fiji
S&T partnered with Designhut (Architects from Nausori, Fiji) as the clinical experts and lead designers of the new Ba Hospital project - the first of its kind for the district.
The design brief included the capacity for 55 hospital beds, outpatient clinic, pharmacy, laboratory, x-ray department, A&E services, full operating suite and a dental facility.
Designed on environmentally sustainable principles with a focus on low maintenance, this future proofed hospital also takes into account the risk of weather factors such as tsunamis and cyclones. As the hospital is also an emergency shelter for the community as well as a healthcare facility, disaster resistant measures had to be in place from its very inception.
