Planning & access
Max Super Speciality Hospital, Shalimar Baug was designed with a primary emphasis on patient comfort and experience. The hospital complex that is ultra-efficient, yet aesthetically beautiful, with a “healing” environment that is comforting and uplifting. The design intent was to create slick circulation systems to seamlessly orient patients, staff, and visitors beginning at the first entry to the site. A distinctive plan at first glance, is set out primarily along the north east axis, considered to be the most preferred orientation according to Vaastu. The facility has the visitor entrance along the NE, emergency entrance along the west and a segregated service entrance along the east. All the outpatient facilities are on the lower floors, followed by critical care and finally the inpatient facilities as we go up the stack.
The In-patient and out-patient circulation has been kept discrete as far as possible. The planning intents to limit the out-patients on the lower floors by placing consulting chambers, O.P.D’s, Diagnostics with non-invasive cardiology and nuclear medicine on the ground floor. The two lift cores are centrally located, yet servicing the hospital and the visitors in their own discrete ways.
The service floor is sandwiched between the IPD floors and the lower floors to reduce the redundancy of services going downwards. Thoughtfully planned service floors render lots of usable space free of F.A.R.
All the floors above the service floor are in-patient floors with combination of Single rooms, double rooms and five bedded wards. The patient rooms and wards have been designed such that each room gets natural light and ventilation.
All the critical areas like the Theatres and the ICU’s are placed on the first and second floor, followed by the service floor which has been utilised by administration areas, seminar rooms etc.
