New Surgical Centre of the University Hospital Hradec Králové – Czech Republic

Surgery is a well-established discipline in the University Hospital of Hradec Králové. The Bedrna Pavilion set a new design standard when it was opened in 1985. However, medicine, procedures, technology and the architectural concept of a modern hospital have changed a great deal in the past 30 years. Design of the new Surgery Complex is to represent all the advancements of the past decades to create a new, enhanced, flexible and ultimately healing environment that will serve for decades to come.
The new addition represents the ongoing centralization efforts of the hospital. Key to the success of this construction and to further developments is creating a framework, where new buildings and functions can be added later. Future expansion is inevitable and the currently built structure has to be ‘future proof’ allowing for ample flexibility and connections in all directions.

Todays interconnected medicine needs an interconnected infrastructure ensuring the possibility of long-term development.
