Relocation of 3 clinics forms healthcare cluster
Keppie was lead design consultant to AlphaMedic Consortium for the rehabilitation of three clinics in Tbilisi, namely, the former Republican Hospital, the Children’s Infectious Diseases Clinical Hospital and the Universal Medical Centre (the former Oncology Centre). The project was a key element of the Tbilisi Cluster Healthcare Transformation Project, a Private and Public Partnership (PPP) between the Ministry of Labour, Health & Social Affairs, AlphaMedic and the Partnership Fund.
The brief called for the relocation of these existing hospitals onto the site of the Republican Hospital in the centre of Tbilisi, providing facilities for adults, a National Cancer Centre and a Paediatric Infectious Diseases Unit. The proposal was that the 460-bed facility would be constructed in three phases, ensuring that the existing Central University Clinic (located at the Republican Hospital) remains fully operational until the facilities have been re-provided.
Keppie’s developed design concept informed the designed Clinical Model. The concept was then developed into detailed design and technical packages for delivery as part of a separate future phase.
