New Ümraniye Gynaecology and Paediatrics Hospital at European Standards Opens

Under the school and hospital reconstructions and retrofits against impacts of earthquake carried out by Istanbul Project Coordination Unit under ISMEP Project, Ümraniye gains a new environmentally friendly Gynaecology and Paediatrics Hospital designed to meet European Standards.

Realizing important provincewide projects under Istanbul Governorship for retrofitting and reconstruction of public buildings against natural disasters, in particular earthquakes, Istanbul Project Coordination Unit (IPCU) completed construction of Ümraniye Gynaecology and Paediatrics Hospital which started in 2012. The new hospital which is subject to Ümraniye Research and Training Hospital draws attention with its technical adequacy and successful architecture.

With total 100 thousand squaremeter indoor area, the new Ümraniye Gynaecology and Paediatrics Hospital will not only serve the Ümraniye district but whole region which is quite distinctive. The inpatient bed capacity is 430, which can be increased up to 486 in case of emergency.

Ümraniye Gynaecology and Paediatrics Hospital, costing EUR 45 million to IPCU, was reconstructed against earthquake on the basis of seismic data.

In Ümraniye Gynaecology and Paediatrics Hospitals which incorporates Bone Marrow Transfer Centre and Medical Oncology Centre, 290 of 486 beds are reserved for the paediatrics service, with 175 beds reserved for the gynaecology, and the rest of the beds reserved for emergency services. The hospital has 50 polyclinics, and a total of 63 intensive care beds, of which 30 beds are for newborns, 15 beds are for children, 8 are for adults, and 10 beds are for adult shelter, as well as 32 emergency service bed, 10 operating rooms, and 30 incubators.

A colourful world for the children

The hospital architecture draws attention with sections specially designed for the children. Independent of the main building, the hospital is coated with colourful panels inspired from crayons thus eliminating the hospital fear of children.

One of the most important features of the hospital, designed by Turkish and German architects, is its environmentally friendly structure. The hospital which is constructed to meet European standards in terms of service quality and standards is designed to satisfy Green Building criteria recognized internationally.

Having 721-car capacity, including the underground parking, Ümraniye Gynaecology and Paediatrics Hospital is an important ring in the chain of hospitals reconstructed by IPCU under ISMEP Project. Of the other hospitals, reconstructed under ISMEP project, Kartal Training and Research Hospital’s capacity has been increased from 45.000 square meters to 290.000 square meters, with increased inpatient bed capacity up to 1.003. Capacity of Okmeydanı Training and Research Hospital, another hospital reconstructed under the project, has been increased by 195.000 square meters to reach 250.000 square meters, with inpatient bed capacity increased up to 1.099. Göztepe Research and Training Hospital, another hospital reconstructed under the project, has its capacity increased up to 250.000 square meters, and inpatient bed capacity up to 1.149.
