Three HDR-designed hospitals broke ground in China at the turn of the new year, each with its own distinct aesthetic and purpose for communities in Jiaxing, Nanjing, and Beijing.

Jiaxing Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital
Jiaxing is a prefecture-level city lying on the Grand Canal of China in northern Zhejiang Province close to the city of Hangzhou and Shanghai. The Jiaxing Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital follows the design concept of motion, convergence, and integration of flowing water to enhance the campus experience for patients and staff. The new hospital reflects this concept as well as the natural landscape of Jiaxing. This new care environment will establish a benchmark for patient access and quality of care for the Zhejiang Province.

Taikang Nanjing International Medical Center
On a hilly site in Nanjing, the 800-bed Taikang Nanjing International Medical Center takes its architectural language from the surrounding landscape. The design concept, Healing Wave, reflects the forested mountains and existing lake. The goal is an efficient and high-functioning hospital that is set within and looks out upon nature.

Beijing Tsinghua Chang Gung Hospital Phase 2
The Phase I Beijing Tsinghua Chang Gung Hospital, affiliated with the prestigious Tsinghua University, has become an indispensable landmark within Northern Beijing. The Beijing Tsinghua Chang Gung Phase 2 is conceptualized to create a cohesive connected campus with better access for the patients and students.
