A hospital that has a long history of caring and celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2016
This project, implemented as JICA's "grant aid cooperation" project for recovery from a disaster caused by Typhoon Yolanda, constructed an outpatient clinic building at the time of relocating and rebuilding of Eastern Visayas Regional Medical Center.
This building has a three-storied atrium in the center and a slope as the main traffic line to realize a dynamic space. In addition, the ceiling is equipped with high-side light systems that lets in light from the east so that the morning sun shines into the building at sunrise. The outpatient examination rooms are allocated on both sides of the central slope. All the outpatient examination rooms are individual cabins with traffic lines for staff members in order to clearly separate traffic lines between patients and staff members. The waiting hall has outer walls consisting of perforated blocks, making it a semi-external space that is well-lit and gives an impression of openness. A connecting passageway to the main building ensures convenience for patients and functionality required for the hospital. Trees were planted in the open area to make it a healing garden where visitors to the hospital can take a walk. A tree representing the hospital is planted in the center of the healing garden and can be decorated and illuminated at the time of events.
