H+A Global, a multidisciplinary design firm specializing in healthcare, hospitality, and residential design, said it has been signed up by Anfas Medical Care Health Group (AMCHG) to provide advisory, architecture, interior, and landscape design services for its new wellness village project in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The Wellness Village is a major project of AMC Health Group, a Saudi-based specialist in providing health services mainly dedicated to long-term lung problems requiring mechanical ventilation.
The upcoming facility boasts a long-term care center, women and children’s facilities, wellness clinics, a boutique wellness hotel and spa, sports fitness facilities, health-related food and beverage (F&B) and retail outlets.
It provides a holistic end-to-end approach to healthcare with a focus on preventative care for the local population as well as visitors, from birth to retirement age, said a top official.
“We are delighted to be awarded a project whose design ethos is so similar to our own; to create opportunities for well-being in all senses of the term – enhancing the way we work, live and play through thoughtful designs that are relevant, creative and fit their intended purpose,” remarked managing director Stas Louca.
Work on the Wellness Village project is set to start in the second quarter of 2020 and is due to be completed in 2022.
The masterplan is made up of three plots over a site area of 35,370 sq m. Plots are visually connected so they read as a single campus within a wellness orientated, landscaped garden, stated Louca.
The goal is to provide a healthcare and wellness environment that heals the body, mind, and soul through related activities and services that are interconnected. The masterplan supports a journey of wellness from arrival to departure, and looks to create a holistic delivery system, he added.
On the new project, CEO Mamdouh Albaqumi said AMCHG had signed up H+A Global to design its vision to provide exceptional care to patients, exceed their highest expectations and establish and maintain their trust.
“Modern technology has allowed us to offer a high level of service, in an economic manner, whilst reducing patient-related errors and accidents. In our Wellness Village project, we will achieve this through the use of live visual feeds that allow immediate two-way communication and the transmission of vital signs in real-time, allowing staff to respond prior to a medical event,” he stated.
“This fundamental shift in medical transparency is a revolutionary development in healthcare,” he added.
Albaqumi said the vision for the project was to create a first-of-its-kind, world-class, preventative healthcare and wellness campus in the Ar Rehab area of Jeddah.
The Saudi city currently has 21 healthcare facilities, 17 hotels and nine retail destinations spread over its center.
