About Acibadem Ataşehir Hospital

Unveiling the Future of Healthcare Design

Designed by Gensler, Acibadem Ataşehir Hospital is a beacon of modern healthcare architecture. Situated in Turkey, this hospital is a masterpiece showcasing the fusion of innovative design with functional healthcare facilities. Done in collaboration with FXCollaborative for the base building architecture, the project boasts a centralized campus. It seamlessly connects a general hospital, a children’s hospital, and headquarters into a cohesive whole. This design strategy not only elevates Acibadem’s local presence but also enhances patient care through a unified experience of culture, well-being, and tradition.

The heart of the hospital, its lobby, offers a serene environment upon arrival. It features digital artwork by Hakan & Suleyman Yılmaz. This artwork, depicting blooming flowers, honors the 145,580 newborns born within Acıbadem’s hospitals. It serves as a therapeutic visual centerpiece, welcoming patients and visitors into a space of healing and recognition.

Designing for Comfort and Healing

As visitors navigate through the hospital, they encounter designated “zones”. Each zone presents a unique atmospheric shift, revealing special moments designed to promote wellness and healing. The outpatient rooms, based on a poly-clinic model, foster a patient-centered approach. This model encourages dialogues between patients and doctors, accommodating family members according to cultural priorities. Every patient floor offers indoor gardens and internal lounges. These spaces provide serene areas for rest or interaction, aiding in patient and family member recovery.

The design’s nuanced approach extends to patient rooms, where the healing garden concept materializes. Calming materials, organic geometry, and sensory surfaces create a therapeutic environment conducive to recovery. This holistic design ethos resonates throughout the hospital, from the children’s hospital’s mascot guiding young patients to wellness to Turkish-inspired visual motifs enriching the interior design.

Redefining Workspace within Healthcare

Moreover, the 16-story workplace and HQ redefine Acıbadem’s corporate identity. It showcases a commitment to employee well-being through ample daylight, terraces, and healing gardens. This approach signifies a broader vision of health that encompasses both patients and healthcare providers.

Acibadem Ataşehir Hospital distinctively combines treatment and healing spaces with cutting-edge medical devices and a digital-focused Command Center. This holistic and innovative approach positions the hospital as a leading example of contemporary healthcare architecture in Turkey.
