Looks really nice, can't wait to see it finished. I'm a patient at Eddies and think the hospital will make us all feel gr8.

Swanke Hayden Connell Architects underway with new healthcare campus in Bermuda 

Swanke Hayden Connell Architects led the design team for Paget Health Services who have been named Bermuda Hospitals Board's private partner and are currently building a new £150m facility on the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital campus in Bermuda. The new hospital facility has been designed to enhance both the patient and staff experience and is designed to form the ‘new front door' to the whole of the healthcare campus, linking the new and existing hospital and anticipating replacement of all existing buildings in phases.  The building is designed with a clear circulation system organised around a central atrium and integrates the surrounding sub-topical landscape. Functionally the new building comprises 90 single patient bedrooms, emergency department, diagnostic imaging, day case surgery, chronic disease management (asthma, diabetes, pain management), renal dialysis and oncology.

The inpatient care floors are organised around a 'doughnut' shaped footprint forming a four storey central atrium, the heart of the new hospital facility. The patient care footprint is fragmented into 4 'rotated' blocks to reduce the impact of the scale of this extruded three storey element. The atrium space is terminated with a roof light or lantern which is sensitively detailed to provide shading to the atrium to mitigate the solar impact upon the atrium space and its users.

The concept for the building facade has been developed by using the local Bermudian island architectural language as a precedent reference. Through the detailed analysis of the Bermudian built landscape, SHCA have identified an architectural language of 'Floating Pavilions within the Landscape' which has provided inspiration for the massing and architectural language of the hospital concept. 

The hospital building concept fuses the rigour of clinical planning with the architectural vision for the external envelope and massing of the building concept to create a cohesive and integrated healthcare solution. Construction began in December 2010. The new building is scheduled to become operational in spring 2014.
