Creativity behind the art at the Nelson Mandela Children's Hospital
The project that was inspired by Nelson Mandela’s aspiration to improve medical care for children will become a reality when it opens to patients early 2017 in one of Southern Africa’s biggest cities, Johannesburg. The funding structure and stringent requirements for a highly specialised care facility at this scale created huge challenges for the introduction of sustainability elements. At all times though, the building holds at heart the needs of its main users: children in need of healing.
Nelson Mandela Children's Hospital opening
Former President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, embarked on the journey to provide a world class healthcare facility specialised in children care in South Africa. The Nelson Mandela Trust was tasked to lead the process. Ruben Reddy Architects partnered with GAPP Architects and Sheppard Robson from the UK, to build the new 200 beds Children’s Academic Hospital funded by the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. The NMCH is a state-of-the-art specialist paediatric academic and tertiary referral hospital providing child-centred best quality medical services to children of Southern Africa, irrespective of their social and economic status. The Hospital includes a world class Theatre Complex with a total number of 10 specialized Theatres. All Theatres are equipped with the latest clinical technology and are fully digital. The hospital was designed to provide a comfortable and playful environment for children. Studies were undertaken to develop solutions to reduce the stress that typical healthcare facilities cause to children. The building is arranged around a series of landscaped courtyards. These courtyards include children’s play areas as well as areas for parents and visitors to relax.
