A hospital is an institution for health care providing patient treatment by specialized staff and equipment,
and often but not always providing for longer-term patient stays.

A hospital may be a single building or a cluster of various units (campus). Many hospitals with pre-20 th
century origins began as one building and evolved into campuses due to the additions of new departments or
expansion of old departments due to population increase. Some hospitals are affiliated with universities for
medical research and the training of medical personnel. Worldwide, most hospitals are run on a non-profit basis by
governments or charities.

Types of Hospitals (that can be applied on the proposed project)

Hospitals are usually distinguished from other types of medical facilities by their ability to admit and are
for inpatients. An inpatient is a patient who is admitted to a hospital for few or longer-term stays. An outpatient is a
patient who is administered healthcare and is allowed to go home within 24-hours.

1. General Hospital

The best known type of hospital is the general hospital, which is set up to deal with many kinds of diseases
and injury, and typically has an emergency department to deal with immediate threats to health and the
capacity to dispatch emergency medical services. A general hospital is typically the major health care facility in
its region, with large numbers of beds for intensive care and long-term care; and specialized facilities for
surgery, plastic surgery, childbirth, bioassay laboratories, and so forth. The size of these hospitals generally
depends upon the population level.

2. Teaching Hospital

A teaching hospital which can also be called university hospital combines assistance to patients with
teaching to medical students and is often linked to a medical school. A teaching hospital is a hospital that in
addition to delivering medical care to patients also provides clinical education and training to future and
current doctors, nurses, and other health professionals. Teaching hospitals are generally affiliated with a school
of medicine. Some teaching hospitals may be owned by a university or be part of an entire health system or
Nurses' station. The nurses' station should be located as centrally as possible in the nursing unit and should
command full view of the nursing corridors. The nursing station will be used for the administrative work of the
nurses inherent in-patient care, preparing medicines, and for doctor-nurse conferences.

The nurses' station should provide, adequate desk space for the nurses to keep charts and make out reports. A
separate locked room is necessary for storing and preparing medicines. A small room is desirable for consultation
between staff members, doctors, patients and patients' families.. A space for doctors to study charts and to dictate
instructions is also desirable. A toilet should be provided for the nurses' use.

Utility Room. The utility room is the general work room for the nursing unit. This room would be used for the
storage and preparation of equipment and supplies used in general through out the nursing unit. Facilities would
be provided for the preparation of juices and between-meal snacks for the patients. A separate area of the utility
room would be used for the disposal of waste and the cleansing of equipment not requiring sterilization in the
central sterilizing room. The utility room should be located adjacent to the nurses' station Treatment Rooms.
Treatment rooms are necessary in every nursing unit. Examination, surgical dressings and other procedures would
be done here instead of in the bedrooms behind the curtains where there are no facilities. It would often save the
patient from embarrassment and would keep the other patients from being disturbed. It would also be used for
teaching purposes.

Day Room. A day room should be provided for ambulant patients to congregate. It gives them a chance to chat and
provides a change of scene from the bedrooms. This room should not be confused with the visitors' rooms placed
near the elevators.

Storage and Closets. There are a number of smaller rooms and closets needed within the nursing unit. Janitor's
closets, flower rooms, stretcher and wheel chair storage and general bulk storage must be provided.

1. Breitfuss Model

A typical feature of the Breitfuss model is that a tall building block with nursing functions is placed above a
flat building block with treatment and outpatient functions. The structure of the building shows a clear division
between the static nursing units in the ward block and the dynamic departments on the lower two (or three)
storeys. The external appearance of the ward block is often of an imposing design due to its definitive status.

In general it may be said that the Breitfuss model produces a compact building with relatively short
walking distances. However, staff and visitors do have to make frequent use of the lifts. The number of lifts is partly
determined by the number of storeys of the ward block. In the case of high-rise with around 10 floors, a
considerable part of the ward block will be taken up by provisions for vertical traffic (lifts and (emergency)
Due to its compact design, this model usually has a clearly recognizable main entrance.

Functional Relationships
Since the low-rise structure contains all diagnostic and treatment functions, it is possible to create good
spatial relationships with this type of building. Where the medical staff is concerned, the stacking of the wards can
mean that there is a considerable distance between the outpatient unit and the wards.
The Breitfuss model, originally designed according to functional planning of the care provided (outpatient
appointment unit, nursing unit, imaging diagnostics, laboratories, etc.), offers in principle sufficient possibilities for
planning the facilities for care provided on the basis of patient flows or on the basis of the care process. The
Breitfuss model is less suitable for planning on the basis of target-groups.

Where flexibility is concerned, account has only been taken of the possibility of adaptation and expansion
in relation to functions on the lowest floors. No possibilities for expansion or adaptation haveusually been provided
for in the ward block. As a result of these limitations in the design, it is more difficult with this type of building to
comply with policy concerning the new style hospital that advocates a shift from inpatient to outpatient.

Example of Breitfuss Model

Location and Name of Institution: The Hague – Leyenburg Hospital
Date of Completion: 1971
Number of Beds: 750 Beds
Gross Floor Area: 90,000 m²
2. Double Comb Structure

The double comb structure is characterized by a traffic zone in the centre from which different building
wings protrude like the teeth of a comb. The building structure is designed like a uniform grid. It comprises many
end walls, the so-called “open ends”, which make it simple to add extensions.

Due to the many open ends, the external architecture gives the impression of being unfinished. In contrast
with the Breitfuss model, for example, an overall picture of the hospital is not visible. If located in the heart of the
traffic zone, the main entrance may be hidden between the teeth of the comb. In the case of large hospitals, this
structure can lead to a sprawling design.

Functional Relationships
Functions which have to comply with the same requirements are grouped in one wing. From the point of
view of size and technical requirements, the teeth of the comb are geared to the functions to be housed there.
Practical experience has shown that stacking spatially related functions with specific requirements regarding
installations can also be successfully done in one wing. For example, the emergency department is located on the
ground floor, intensive care on the first floor and the operating unit on the second floor. Other designs may include
all laboratories in one wing, plus the pharmacy and the central sterile supply services unit, or wings with only
nursing functions.

The double comb structure was developed at a period when flexibility had become one of the most
important design criteria. Flexibility is guaranteed by extending the teeth of the comb or by extending the traffic
structure by adding a new wing. The basis structure of the hospital remains unchanged after these extensions.
Example of Double Comb Structure
Location and Name of Institution: Nieuwegein – St. Antonius Hospital
Date of Completion: 1979
Number of Beds: 579 Beds
Gross Floor Area: 61,000 m²

3. Arcade Structure

The arcade hospital emerged as a new model in the early eighties and has been used a number of times in
the Netherlands. In this model, the building elements of the hospital are linked with each other by a glass-covered
arcade for main traffic. Located on both sides of this arcade, on several floors, are the rooms or internal access
routes that look out onto the arcade. In the arcade on the ground floor are a number of public amenities such as
shops and a restaurant.
The high arcade is a clear structuring element. The main entrance at one end of the arcade is easily
recognizable. From the arcade, the vertical means of access to the upper floors are clearly visible.

Functional Relationships
It is evident from the hospitals built in accordance with this model that organization can take place in
various different ways.

In Waterland Regional Hospital in Purmerend, the functions are located above each other. On the ground
floor are the outpatient clinics, on the first floor the operating department and the laboratories, and above those a
technical floor. The top two storeys house the nursing wards.

In Almere, Flevo Hospital is also based on an arcade model, but in this instance the functions have been
placed behind each other in different parts of the building. The outpatient departments, imaging diagnostics and
the accommodation for management functions are situated near the main entrance. In the centrally located areas
of the building are the operating department, the emergency department, laboratories and physiotherapy. At the
end of the arcade are two building elements containing the nursing wards.

Maasland Hospital in Sittard, currently at the design stage, will also be built according to the arcade
structure. A section of the building for treatment functions is planned in the heart of the complex, at right angles to
the arcade. Parallel to the arcade on the ground floor and the first floor will come the outpatient department
facilities. Above these, on the top three floors, will be the nursing wards.

In a similar way to the double comb structure, the traffic structure (arcade) can be extended while
retaining the basic structure and new building elements can be added to it. The building elements linked to the
arcade usually have open ends on the other side that make it simple to add extensions in the future.

Example of Arcade Structure

Location and Name of Institution: Almere – Flevo Hospital
Date of Completion: 1991
Number of Beds: 213 Beds
Gross Floor Area: 19,000 M²
4. Cross Structure

In the case of this model, two building blocks each in the form of a cross have been linked to each other so
as to create a large covered hall between the two building blocks. The covered hall is the centre of the building and
contains the central facilities.

The main entrance is located in on corner of the covered hall. This plaza is the heart of the structure and
contains the central facilities. The vertical access points in the cross-shaped building blocks are clearly visible from
the plaza. This structure lends itself well to the development of a relatively large hospital within a compact design.

Functional Relationships
The best-known hospital based on this model is the Rijnstate Hospital in Arnhem. Virtually all the nursing
wards are housed on the top four storeys of this hospital. The outpatient departments and treatment & diagnostics
units are located on the lower level. Between the upper and lower level is a technical floor. From the two
intersections, a walkway diagonally crosses the central hall at a first floor level, thereby reducing walking distances.
The cross structure is in principle suitable for all three planning models with regard to accommodating the care

The open ends of the cross-shaped building sections can be extended while retaining the basic structure.

Example Of Cross Structure

Location and Name of Institution: Arnhem - Rijnstate Hospital
Date of Completion: 1994
Number of Beds: 750 Beds
Gross Floor Area: 82,000 m²
5. Branched Structure

Under the heading branched structure, a look will be taken at two completed hospitals where the most
characteristic element of the structure is formed by the number of branches and open ends. This concerns the
Canisius Wilhelmina Hospital in Nijmegen completed in 1992 and the Antonius Hospital in Sneek completed in
1994. In both of these hospitals, a square central hall forms the heart of the building.

The main entrance is directly linked to the central hall. The central hall is the centre of the structure and
contains amenities such as boutiques and a restaurant. From this central hall the patients and visitors can gain
access to the most important departments of the hospital. The main stairwells and the lifts are easily accessible
from the central hall.
Functional Relationships
The Canisius-Wilhelmina Hospital in Nijmegen was built according to this design. With an average of 3
storeys, this hospital is relatively low-rise. The outpatient departments have their own entrance, but this is located
on the same side of the square as the main entrance. Most nursing wards are located in the branches leading off
the square. The operating department and intensive care are situated on the top floor. The situation and size of the
site made it possible to build a relatively low-rise hospital. This means that all the wards have a pleasant view over
the green surroundings.

The Antonius Hospital built in Sneek is also characterized by low-rise building. In this hospital, separate
buildings elements were developed per main function. The services building is located separately so that this
function can respond to future developments. Functions which require a higher building height have been located
on the top floor. This concerns the X-ray and operating departments, physiotherapy, pharmacy and laboratories.

Due to the existence of many open ends, a branched structure possesses by definition sufficient external
flexibility. The following observations may be made regarding flexibility in the Antonius Hospital. The different
function groups have been housed in separate building elements with a construction and raster size geared to the
function group. Supporting outside walls have been used for patient accommodation, while diagnostic, treatment
and service functions have a skeleton structure. Since each main function is located at an open end, the possibility
of expansion is guaranteed. All beds in the multi-bed rooms are of equal quality due to the fact that the beds are
located by a window. In addition, all multi-bed rooms can be partitioned into maximum one-bed rooms.

Example of Branched Structure

Location and Name of Institution: Sneek – Antonius Hospital
Date of Completion: 1992
Number of Beds: 270 Beds
Gross Floor Area: 29,000 m²

Example of Branched Structure

Location and Name of Institution: Nijmegen – Canisius-Wilhelmina Hospital
Date of Completion: 1992
Number of Beds: 638 Beds
Gross Floor Area: 63,000 m²
6. Linear Structure

For the draft plan for Vlietland Hospital in Schiedam, a design has been developed consisting of a single
linear block that can accommodate all hospital functions in accordance with their inter-relationships. The depth of
the block is approximately 22 metres and is designed for the application of a double corridor.

Stairwells and cable and piping shafts have been incorporated in a rational design in the central zone.

The linear block forming the hospital is designed with a number of kinks so that the overall shape
resembles a hairpin. An entrance is located on both sides and opens into a high glass hall that is wedged between
the linear building block. The different lifts and stairwells can be reached from the central hall. In places where a
short link is required for functional purposes, additional glass connection corridors have been designed between
departments located opposite each other. In this way acceptable walking distances have been achieved.

Function Relationships
The dimensions of the linear building have been geared to house both outpatient clinics and nursing
wards. On different floors, outpatient departments are located next to nursing wards. In the case of future bed
reductions, wards can easily be converted into outpatient clinic space. This design is fully in accordance with policy
on new style hospitals where a shift from inpatient to outpatient is advocated.

There are limitations regarding the external flexibility of the design of Vlietland Hospital on account of the
fact that it only has two open ends and due to the size of the site. Internal flexibility is good, due for instance to the
rational uniform design which makes it possible to interchange functions.

Example of Linear Structure

Location and Name of Institution: Schiedam – Vlietland Hospital
Date of Completion: 2006 (Planned)
Number of Beds: 453 Beds
Gross Floor Area: 48,000 m²

7. Pavilion

During the pre-war years, larger hospitals were built according to the pavilion structure. A cluster of
categorial hospitals was built on the site. This method was abandoned after the war. Today, however, some designs
for large hospitals are returning to the pavilion structure and opting for a plan according to clinical entities, themes
or type of care. An example of this is the design for the Isala Clinics in Zwolle. A characteristic feature of the pavilion
structure is that the spatial facilities that form part of the chosen plan are grouped together.
The design of the new building for the Isala Clinics comprises four blocks, varying from four to six storeys.
Each block has an atrium. The building blocks will be built on three sides of the existing complex. Situated beneath
the new building blocks is a parking garage from which all four blocks can be reached. In addition, the main
entrance is located between two blocks, passing into a central hall into which opens an extensive system of
corridors providing access to all the building elements. This design has several different entrances as a result of
which extra measures will be necessary from the point of view of security and surveillance.

Functional Relationships
The new building will house virtually all patient-related functions, organized per block according to clinical
entity. As you move higher up the building, facilities for outpatients decrease as inpatient facilities increase.
The pavilion structure is particularly suitable for a plan based on care according to target-groups/clinical

A design based on planning according to clinical entity in one or more building elements has a negative
effect on flexibility. Changes in activities and space between the functional units as a result of developments in the
care sector will be difficult to achieve in the future without a change in the basic organisation principles.

External flexibility does exist, however, since in this design a number of building elements can be extended
at the ends. Account has also been taken of constructing an extra floor on top of the different building elements.

Example of Pavilion Structure

Location and Name of Institution: Zwolle – Isala Clinics

Number of Beds: 911 Beds
Gross Floor Area: 126,000 m²
