New diagnostic and surgical procedures hospital in Tel Aviv

Assuta Medical Centers Ltd. of Israel chose Zeidler Partnership to design a diagnostic and surgical procedures hospital in Tel Aviv.

Designing an international healthcare facility requires an understanding of the site and the local culture in order to understand the nature of the project. The design process for the Assuta project successfully merged patient expectations with the hospital’s objectives by integrating the site, culture and medical systems. The hospital’s goal is to provide a new standard of treatment and services currently unknown in Israel. The facility will attract clients and the best medical staff allowing for sustainable future growth. The building site borders on Habarzel Street, a newly developed high tech zone for the city.

The Assuta Medical Center’s main services are invasive and non-invasive, diagnostic and procedural. They include, in phase one, outpatient and inpatient facilities with 16 Operating Rooms, 27 Intensive Care units, 230 acute care beds, 40 day surgery beds, Imaging, Catheter Labs, Radiation Therapy and Dialysis. The new center will add significantly to the capacity of the existing 6 Assuta facilities in Israel.
