Karbala 400-bed Teaching Hospital

Karbala, Iraq

This 400-bed seven-storey hospital will provide all medical services to the general public and will also serve as a teaching facility. This new world class hospital will accommodate six maternity wards and 10 operating theaters.

Karbala is a city built around the Twin Shrines of Mashad Al- Husain and Mashad Al-Bass and lies 110 km southwest of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad. The hospital design references the significance of the shrines and provides state-of-the-art medical services for the use of the local population and by worshippers that visit Karbala.

The project is designed to meet LEED Gold Certification through the implementation of energy efficient systems.
