Design Philosophy

Behind the design of each of these facilties is a philosophy combining innovation and unsurpassed international healthcare practices, whilst fulfilling the specific needs of Zimbabwe. Each hospital and health centre has been designed with an appreciation of context, in view of factors such as logistics, climate, client requirements and the use of locally sourced materials.

The design priority is to support the best and most appropriate modern clinical procedures, together with enhancing patient care and well-being. Each facility resides within a therapeutic landscape and utilises local indigenous plant species and natural resources to promote patient healing.

The Hospitals and Health Centres are designed to support the latest and most locally appropriate clinical standards and operational sustainability features, whilst complementing and enhancing staff training and expertise.

120-Bed Hospital

The 120-bed Hospital provides a welcoming and therapeutic environment that has been designed to enhance patient experience, whilst providing exceptional value for money by boasting minimal maintenance and a low energy footprint.

The hospital utilises an innovative design that provides sustainable systems for ventilation, power and lighting through harnessing the natural resources, lowering operating costs as well as improving patient experience.

Each hospital boasts 21st century equipment and facilities, whilst all functions are supported by appropriately specified and sophisticated mechanical, electrical and telecommunication systems, developed in conjunction with the customer.

Health Centres

The 20-bed Health Centres provide primary healthcare provisions to Zimbabwe’s rural regions, offering greater accessibility to health care and filtering admissions to larger District Hospitals.

These facilities employ state-of-the-art medical equipment within a therapeutic environment, adopting a holistic approach to patient recovery.

All Health Centres are designed to be flexible facilities to cope with the demands of modern Zimbabwean healthcare and offer the following services:

  • Outpatient
  • Maternity
  • ART (Antiretroviral Therapy)
  • Inpatient
  • Staff Accommodation
