Sheikh Khalifa Central Hospital
Fujairah and the disability rehabilitation center in the east coast of the United Arab Emirates.
The design concept of the hospital is inspired and themed by developing a linear public atrium linking all of the elements of the Hospital and the Disability Rehabilitation Center. The linear public atrium forms a spine traversing most of the length of the complex from a parking structure at the northern end of the site to an open end in the south. The campus buildings are organized along the spine. The hospital straddles the spine with patient bed towers on the east, the seaside of the spine, and the diagnostic and treatment facilities to the west with bridges at all levels to link the services. The outpatient oriented programs; including the Rehab Center, have been grouped into a single building to create a structure with greater dynamic presence then the individual elements might have commanded. The form for the Rehab Center and outpatient facilities is an organic free flowing structure offering many opportunities to open the interior to views towards the sea, as well as protected gardens between the Rahab Center and the spine. The patient bed towers are sculpted to allow all patient rooms a sea view.
A mosque is incorporated into the campus, where it is not attached to the spine yet it is linked with the main public atrium by a formal plaza and garden. The mosque has been added to the site at the northern end of the spine in addition to prayer spaces that will be provided strategically within the hospital and outpatient areas. Furthermore, the mosque will play a significant role to uplift spiritual moral of the hospital visitors especially in cases of desperation being the first facility facing the visitors from the parking approach.
The spine is divided into three zones: The Treatment Zone, The Social Zone, and the Meditation Zone.
The hospital has been planned to accommodate growth from the initial 205 beds to an optimal number of 300 beds. As it is not likely to increase the number of beds without impacting other key services, such as surgery or emergency, the hospital has been planned to have parallel growth in the diagnostic and treatment block. As for the existing structured parking is already designed to accommodate required cars for the future expansion.
The hospital has a Trauma and Accident Department (ER), Inpatient Wards, Intensive Care Units (ICU), Department of Maternity and Premature Delivery, Department of Burn Unit, Department of Surgical and Internal Medicine, Radiology Department, Laboratory and Blood Bank Department, Department of Anesthesiology and Recovery Department, Operations Theatre Department, Cardiac Catheter Department, Endoscopy / Cystoscopy Department, Supporting Service Departments, and Outpatient Clinics.
The Emirate of Fujairah is unique among the rest of the Emirates, because it is located on the Gulf of Oman; outside the Strait of Hormuz. The beaches of Fujairah extend on about 90 Kilometers along the Gulf of Oman, which makes it a unique and important strategic location. The area of the Emirate of Fujairah is 1165 square Kilometers, equivalent to 1.5% of the total area of the country without the islands. The total population is around 125,700 habitants.
