New-age medical center coming to Doha, Qatar

April 01, 2007 |

The design team of Pelli Clarke Pelli, New Haven, Conn., and Ellerbe Becket, Minneapolis, has unveiled its dramatic design for the Sidra Medical and Research Center in Doha, Qatar. Developed by the Qatar Foundation, the landmark facility will be the first academic medical and research center in the region based on the North American healthcare model. All patient rooms will have unobstructed views of the facility's three soaring glass atriums that double as indoor healing gardens, offering fresh air during the cooler months.

The towering atriums divide the sweeping facility into sections and accentuate the dedicated entrances of the three hospitals within a hospital—one for children, one for women, and one for adults (male and female). The all-digital center will feature patient rooms with three zones to accommodate the patient, family, and hospital staff.
