IN Treatment

Located in the People’s Republic of China, the Zhejiang University Medical Center (ZUMC), affiliated with the School of Medicine of Zhejiang University, is a 1 million sf replacement hospital located on a dense urban site. With 600 inpatient beds, a state-of-the-art surgery suite, ambulatory clinics, and comprehensive support services, the new facility continues the University’s legacy of leadership in quality healthcare and education, housing healthcare’s most advanced technologies and complex functions with efficiency and grace in a human-centered environment. In addition to abundant natural light, views, gardens, and courtyards enhance the healing environment for patients, families, and staff. A human-centered focus is evidenced through integrating “spaces for people” throughout. The largest, a weather-protected “urban living room,” provides patients and their families convenient access to shops, cafés, gardens, and outdoor seating. A “sacred courtyard” celebrating culture, tradition, and history, encourages reflection. Inviting grounds and entryways project a civic presence and signify the institution’s commitment to community.
