The new Xuhui District South Healthcare Center will be located on prime real estate across from the Shanghai Botanic Gardens. The healthcare campus will include a 1,000-bed general hospital, 500-bed mental health hospital and fully integrated research & development building.

The site has been organized from the inside out. A spacious, two-level pedestrian and vehicular plaza is located at the center of the property in order to draw congestion away from the busy city streets. A faculty apartment complex, office and R&D buildings provide a buffer zone between the hospital and surrounding residential community. The general hospital and mental health hospital have been organized around large courtyard spaces, while the three south-facing ward towers offer spectacular views of the Botanic Gardens.

This project was awarded to us after a two-month design competition. The client, design team and medical program consultant immediately embarked on a collaborative process to right-size
the facility, confirm departmental adjacencies and establish the overall public, patient, staff and logistic circulation networks. Our collective goal is to provide a flexible framework that can support healthcare delivery to residents of Xuhui District South for years to come.
