Case Study

Aiyuhua Hospital for Children and Women The First Privately-Owned Hospital in Beijing Raises the Bar

Beijing, China

The Challenge

To collaborate on a high-end health care experience in service of holistic patient wellness for women and children/peditrics.

The Design Solution

While many hospitals in China have low-end interior finishes that require frequent renovation, HKS designers, along with Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and China IPPR Engineering Corporation, answered the client’s call for a high-end look and installed quality finishes that will last longer and serve the mission of family-centered care. Lounge sofas convert to beds for family members to stay overnight. VIP suites are high-end hotel quality, with sophisticated but durable finishes.

The design blends health care concepts from the West with the rich history and character of the Chinese culture, with its colorful and vivid exterior and symbolic and meaningful interior design.

The Design Impact

The facility is the first privately-funded hospital in Beijing and features clinics that can serve 1,200 outpatients daily. The hospital has received accreditation from the Joint Commission International.
