design of a surgical hospital (Concept & Basic Design all services, Architectural Technical & Detail Design)


The Viet Duc Hospital, founded in 1904, is one of the largest surgical hospitals in Vietnam with 1,400 beds and 30 operating theatres. A rising demand for care and a constrained location in a dense urban fabric necessitated a new hospital. Viet Duc 2 has 42 operating theatres and 1,000 beds. At one kilometre from Bach Mai II, both hospitals are part of a recovery movement of the Vietnamese government with regard to health care.

Viet Duc Hospital in Hanoi was originally founded in 1904, and now has developed into the most important surgical hospital in the country. It has 1,400 patient beds and 30 operating theatres.

The hospital’s facilities could no longer meet demand. The site in the heart of the city allowed little opportunity for expansion and therefore the Ministry of Health decided that a second new facility would be developed for the hospital on a greenfield site.

This second facility for Viet Duc is located in Phu Ly City, the capital of Ha Nam Province, 60km south of the existing hospital. It has excellent transport links, being situated at a junction on the primary north-south road and the north-south railway line, allowing it to serve both Hanoi and the wider northern region.

The hospital is organised vertically. The plinth houses all public functions and the medical block. The 4 towers contain mainly nursing departments.

The new hospital has significant outpatient facilities, 1,000 in-patient beds, and at least 40 operating theatres.
