VinaCapital Pediatric Hospital
The VinaCapital Foundation nominated world-class architecture and interior design firm dwp to provide the architecture for an affordable international standard 200-bed pediatric hospital in Nha Trang City.

dwp were asked to design a facility that is practical and works well in the context of Vietnamese culture and medical traditions and to provide a core built to international standards - including the operating theatres, isolation for infectious disease and intensive care unit.

The Hospital will include five centres of excellence:
. Neonatology
. Orthopedics/Burn
. Gastroenterology/nutrition
. Respiratory Medicine
. Infectious Diseases

Central to the design concept is for the hospital to be child and family centered. The Hospital will be built with eco-friendly materials and systems and will operate using green products and standards.

The design will be simple, efficient and affordable and careful consideration will be given to how the building will work best in terms of climatic response. The orientation and design will consider natural cross flow ventilation and thought will be given to the impact of internal subdivisions in terms of the free flow of air and the effect of wind pressure to maxmise ventilation and induce air changes through the building. When completed, the hospital will become the leading healthcare facility for children in Vietnam.
