Hospitals are considered one of the most vital services in the community due to their immense role in preserving the lives of the citizens. Therefore, they are designed and constructed according to internationally recognized architectural and health specifications. Imam Al-Hujjah Hospital was designed and built in compliance with the British Health Building Notes (HBN) criteria. These standards offer the latest guidelines in the design and planning of modern healthcare buildings.
Moreover, universal Hospital Services (UHS) – Jordan, were consulted on the design and construction planning of Imam Al-Hujjah Hospital.
The building is designed to be delightful, allowing natural sunlight to enter from all angles with the appropriate height of the ceilings, in addition to spacious rooms, corridors and halls. The main lobby of the hospital has a transparent glass wall that is 14 meters high, covering the ground and the first floors, to allow natural lighting into the building and give joy and comfort to hospital visitors.
The building is surrounded by a botanical garden, with Cassia trees and American Cycas palms. The ground is furnished with natural Indian grass. Roses, Bougainvillea and Periwinkle adorn the garden sides as well, with beautiful wooden benches allocated to serve visitors during times of recreation and relaxation.
Inpatient suites boast maximum aesthetics, comfort and efficiency. Single-bed and double-bed rooms were distributed in each patients’ ward, all rooms are furnished with white medical curtains to provide patients with privacy. In each room there is a wardrobe for clothes and a programmed TV with more than 200 satellite channels. Each room also has a bathroom with a shower and sanitary facilities, constructed in compliance with health and safety standards. The patients’ rooms are equipped with medical bedhead units, which include electric inlets, medical gas outlets, and reading and bed lights.
The walls are decorated with Islamic geometric arts and patterns, inspired by the holy land of Karbala.
The wide windows in the rooms are provided with 100% blinds to obscure unwanted light during sleep and resting.
The floors are furnished with natural antibacterial Linoleum. LED Lights supported by an uninterruptible power supply system (UPS), have been installed in all rooms to overcome power outage (for even a few seconds).
