Today's Fact

Outside of Cairo, Egypt, in 6 October City, the Egyptian American Medical Center will rise to create a stunning, state of the art medical facility on the Cairo-Alexandria Highway. The design is founded in the sun-rich environment and the desire to create an oasis of shade to harbor spaces of healing. The mass of the building is carved away, emulating erosion by desert winds, creating dramatic angles, and then separated in the middle to form the grand entry. Raised on an elevated plinth, the entry courtyard is a lush, shaded space with cascading shadows from the canopy above. The materials are limestone for the outer shell screened from the harsh heat and sun environment with deep recessed windows that allude to Egyptian graphical patterns.

LEED CERTIFIED

The building has LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), verifying that it was designed and built using strategies of preservation and conservation to limit human and environmental impact.

LAND AND MATERIAL PRESERVATION

  • More than 20,000 square meters site will be maintained as green, open space.
  • Recycled materials were used during construction wherever possible.
  • Construction debris, such as rocks and sands were used as natural fill on the site, rather than deposited in landfills.
  • More than 700 trees were planted on the site for aesthetics and for the practical purpose of absorbing storm water runoff.

STORM WATER MANAGEMENT

Storm water collects in swales and flows to a retention basin, where plants filter out pollutants. The water is released slowly into local waterways, through a pipe of restrictive diameter, so it has time to cool from high temperatures which might be detrimental to wildlife and vegetation.

WATER CONSERVATION

The hospital will use 30 percent less water than the LEED code requires.

  • The site is planted with indigenous flora which will not require watering once established, eliminating the need for an irrigation system.
  • All interior fixtures, such as toilets, showers and spigots, are low-flow designs which use less water than standard fixtures.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

The building is 25 per cent more energy efficient than required by LEED code.

  • All light fixtures will use high-efficiency LED and fluorescent bulbs, instead of incandescent.
  • The air conditioning, ventilation and heating systems use heat exchangers to moderate the temperature of the constantly renewed flow of outside air, thereby reducing the energy necessary for heating and cooling.

REDUCING LIGHT POLLUTION

  • All outside lighting, including decorative façade lighting and lamppost lighting for walkways and parking lots, will be pointed downward, rather than upward, to limit external glow.
  • All outside lighting has a narrow range of exposure to minimize diffusion.

OTHER MEASURES

  • Environmentally friendly chemicals will be used as cleaning solutions.
  • Bicycle racks were installed to promote two-wheeled transportation.
  • Bus service was inaugurated to minimize automobile emissions.
  • Staff, patients and families will be encouraged to contribute to conservation efforts through recycling and other measures.

Stunning Design

Outside of Cairo, Egypt, in 6 October City, the Egyptian American Medical Center will rise to create a stunning, state of the art medical facility on the Cairo-Alexandria Highway. The design is founded in the sun-rich environment and the desire to create an oasis of shade to harbor spaces of healing. The mass of the building is carved away, emulating erosion by desert winds, creating dramatic angles, and then separated in the middle to form the grand entry. Raised on an elevated plinth, the entry courtyard is a lush, shaded space with cascading shadows from the canopy above. The materials are limestone for the outer shell screened from the harsh heat and sun environment with deep recessed windows that allude to Egyptian graphical patterns.

The interior/ main entry is an oasis of palm tree gardens and courtyards combined with entry drives. This oasis is then transferred into the building thru transparent glass walls that create lobbies for both inpatient and outpatient access.

 

The entire area is shaded with a continuous canopy that extends over the complex providing shade cover to outdoor and indoor spaces.

 

With the latest in modern medical equipment, the EAMC will offer a full-service Acute Care Hospital, a Cancer Center, a 100-physician Medical Arts Building, a Conference/Education Center, a Wellness Center, along with many other services to serve the region.

 

First new hospital in the region in a decade

Egyptian American Medical Center will be the first new hospital built from the ground up in greater Cairo area in more than a decade.  The 40,000 square-meters hospital, opening in 2017, will have 106 private medical/surgical rooms, a 16-bed intensive care unit, a 16-bed obstetrical unit , 20 emergency rooms department, 7- operating rooms (one is dedicated to cardiothoracic surgery), 12- recovery rooms, multidisciplinary cancer center, and five-bed neonatal intensive care unit.  The $90 million facility also will feature a five-story, 10,000 square-meters medical arts building connected to the main building through an enclosed corridor.

Egyptian American Medical Center will have integrate the most modern  technology and medical equipment as well as, an integrated information system that will allow medical personnel immediate access to patient charts and test results.  Everything from the art to the architecture to patient amenities has been designed to maximize patient care, comfort and satisfaction.

 

Patient and Visitor Amenities

Patient rooms are all private and light-filled, with wall-to-wall windows overlooking the bucolic landscape of Hospital Park. Rooms will have a 42-inch flat-screen televisions and wireless internet access.  Meals will be served through hotel-style room service so that patients can eat what they want when they want it, from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm (with respect to patient’s own medical condition).

There will not be any visiting hour restrictions in order that family members can visit their loved ones at any time of day. Each room will have a family area with a sofa/bed for sleepovers.  Visitors can order from the room-service menu and for a nominal fee, they will be able to dine with the patient. Patients and guests will also be entitled to complimentary parking.

Art will selected for its visual serenity and regional relevance will compliment the corridors and other public spaces of the facility. Rooms have interior windows so nurses can monitor patients through closed doors, enhancing privacy and allowing patients to sleep undisturbed by noise.

Economic Impact

The medical center will create hundreds of jobs and be an economic generator for the local economy. More than 500 construction workers will have worked on the facility when it’s complete. Three hundred jobs at Egyptian American Medical Center will be created for medical and support personnel.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

Egyptian American Medical Center will be capable of caring for the smallest and sickest newborns in its Level IIIB neonatal intensive care unit, the highest level of care available outside of regional pediatric hospitals.  Level IIIB NICUs are staffed around the clock by a specialized team consisting of neonatologists, neonatal nurses, and respiratory therapists, who can effectively manage the care  of newborns of any viable gestational age, including micro-preemies. The NICU can provide high-frequency mechanical ventilation, which can deliver close to 1,000 breaths per minute. High frequency ventilators are gentler on an infant’s fragile airways than conventional ventilators and can prevent lung damage in babies who need long-term ventilation.

Cardiothoracic surgery

Heart and lung surgery will be available in Egyptian American Medical Center under the supervision of world-renowned Cardiothoracic Surgeons. Eligible patients may receive robotic and minimally invasive surgery which allows access to the heart through small incisions and without stopping the heart, or separating the breastbone and ribcage, or requiring a heart-lung machine to be used. The medical center also has cutting-edge diagnostic and treatment labs for catheterization and electrophysiology studies.

Emergency Services

The Emergency Department was designed to expedite care by its location immediately adjacent to the imaging facilities, and the inclusion of a dedicated elevator directly to the interventional floor. The department, which has a capacity of 30,000 patient visits a year, has a total of 20 beds, including a four-bed section for minor injuries; four-bed section for observation of patients who may or may not be admitted; and two pods with 12 beds for patients with acute symptoms.

Preservation and Green Initiatives

Preservation and energy efficiency have been guiding principles throughout construction, starting with the land itself: more than 20,000 square-meters of the 40,000 square-meters site have been maintained as green, open space. The building has LEED certification, (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), and will use 30 percent less water and will be 25 percent more energy efficient than code requirements. Recycled materials were used in construction whenever possible, and waste was diverted from landfills. In addition, bike racks have been installed to encourage two-wheel transportation, and natural vegetation will cover the landscape to avoid the installation of watering mechanisms.
