Gokhale Orthopaedic Centre & Orthoved Hospital at Dombivli
Hospitals are a concise combination of form & function; of societal need and cultural nuance just as the arteries of a body make up a complex web of functions to streamline the passage of blood between organs. This project is first of it’s kind in Dombivli of 14300 sq.ft. area. and three-storeyed with orthopaedic hospital (Gokhale Orthopaedic Centre) & ayurvedic hospital (Orthoved hospital). The building uses a great deal of glass in its design for ample views and day lighting. The translucent glass partitions along the corridor allows natural light in all spaces.
Because of the array of facilities and services located in the building such as X-ray lab, Physiotherapy, OPD’s, Operation theatres,etc. diagnosis and treatment can take place all in one location.
Every effort has been made to make the hospital stay as unthreatening, comfortable, and stress-free as possible to create a therapeutic environment by using cheerful and varied colors, textures, wallpapers keeping in mind that some colors are inappropriate, admitting ample natural light wherever feasible and using color-corrected lighting in interior spaces which closely approximates natural daylight, providing views of the outdoors from every room and elsewhere wherever possible.
The passages and corridors are designed to allow easy movement and are wide enough for two stretchers to pass easily. Making efficient use of space by locating support spaces so that they may be shared by adjacent functional areas and by making prudent use of multipurpose spaces such as X-ray lab & physiotherapy are place near OPDs, Autoclave near Operation Theatres .
Aesthetics is closely related to creating a therapeutic environment. A better environment also contributes to better staff morale and patient care. Aesthetic considerations include: Increased use of natural light, natural materials, and textures Use of artwork, wallpapers. Attention to proportions, color, scale, and detail Bright, open, generously-scaled public spaces Homelike and intimate scale in patient rooms, day rooms, consultation rooms, and offices Compatibility of exterior design with its physical surroundings
Cleanliness and Sanitation
Hospitals must be easy to clean and maintain. This is facilitated by: Appropriate, durable finishes for each functional space. Careful detailing of such features as doorframes, casework, and finish transitions to avoid dirt-catching and hard-to-clean crevices and joints. Adequate and appropriately located housekeeping spaces. Special materials, finishes, and details for spaces which are to be kept sterile, such as operating theaters. The antimicrobial surfaces are considered for appropriate locations.
