Incorporation of natural light and landscaped surrounds enhance the patient experience.
This purpose built elderly care facility project comprised the construction of a two storey 4,000 m², 50 bed community hospital unit with separate day care centre.
MCA made a concerted effort to ensure the design incorporated natural daylight and ventilation for all patient and staff areas including the central corridors and nurses' stations via a high level clerestorey automated windows system.
Views were provided towards the landscaped gardens and courtyards from all bedrooms, meeting rooms and social rooms to enhance the patients' experience. The works were carried out within the grounds of the existing Navan Hospital requiring incorporation of special safety and co-ordination measures with the Hospital.
