Grand design making most of rich natural environment
The construction plan made the most of the "Forest of Health and Culture" where a natural forest remains. A triangle-shaped building and a compact floor plan were adopted to conserve the rich natural forest that continues from Otaka-no-Mori (Forest of Goshawks) as much as possible and make the most of the superb view. The building height was also restricted in consideration of the surrounding environment. Additionally, harmony with nature was considered as a theme by conserving the nature with a babbling stream and building an outdoor walking rehabilitation course along a vegetable garden and the natural forest. At the same time, this hospital was planned as an advanced hospital that can provide secondary emergency care as one of the core emergency facilities that are lacking in this medical district. This hospital has direct traffic lines from the emergency units to the operating theaters or examination rooms, and from there to the acute ward, ensuring promptness indispensable for emergency medical care. The interior was designed with emphasis on ample space with abundant natural lighting and completeness of universal designs in order to create convenient and comfortable amenity space of the "user-friendly hospital for patients, visitors, etc." It is also a "hospital that ensures ease of work for staff" with inter-ward coordination, safety enhancement, around-the-clock nursery in the hospital, etc.
