Kaiser Permanente's Small Hospital, Big Idea competition won by Aditazz and M+NLB/Perkins+Will

Aditazz and M+NLB/ Perkins + Will have been announced winners of a stimulating competition hosted by not-for-profit health plan and care provider Kaiser Permanente which challenged multidisciplinary teams to conceptualise small hospital facilities that challenge the way we approach healthcare environments. The brief stated that the entrants must ensure a minimal impact on the building site.

$750,000 was presented to the two winning teams with proposals to develop their ideas further in collaboration with Kaiser Permanente. The competition looked to redefine the idea of small healthcare projects by overcoming the unique challenges of a modest market.

Benjamin Chu, President of Kaiser Permanente Southern California, explains: “We are not just looking for dynamic building designs. We want a partner with fresh ideas on how technology and medicine can reshape our current medical delivery infrastructure to provide even more exceptional, effective, and convenient care to our members.”
