City of St. Petersburg and St. Petersburg State University: Concept planning for new university hospital
The aim of the project was to create a modern Russian hospital where the operations, organisation and facilities would be up to Western standards. This new university hospital concept was created based on the patient-oriented planning processes. A research and teaching campus and a centre of expertise were planned around the hospital itself. Population health needs, the hospital and the surrounding service system were broadly examined in the project. The analysis included following areas:
- Mapping and analysis of current demand and supply of health services
- Calculations of required resources (in relation to the projected volume and growing demand in the St. Petersburg area)
- Process-based layout design together with architects
- Planning of service modules and related processes
- Planning of an innovative health care management model
- Planning of a management and monitoring model
- Financing plan and planning of a private sector cooperation model based on Public Private Partnership (PPP)
- Related juridical studies
- Integration of primary and secondary health care
- Mapping of the best practices by benchmarking five European and North American university hospitals.
- The scope of the project was unique, because it included the planning and building of an entire university hospital and the surrounding areas on a basically empty piece of land.
