City of St. Petersburg and St. Petersburg State University: Concept planning for new university hospital

The aim of the project was to create a modern Russian hospital where the operations, organisation and facilities would be up to Western standards. This new university hospital concept was created based on the patient-oriented planning processes. A research and teaching campus and a centre of expertise were planned around the hospital itself. Population health needs, the hospital and the surrounding service system were broadly examined in the project. The analysis included following areas:

  • Mapping and analysis of current demand and supply of health services
  • Calculations of required resources (in relation to the projected volume and growing demand in the St. Petersburg area)
  • Process-based layout design together with architects
  • Planning of service modules and related processes
  • Planning of an innovative health care management model
  • Planning of a management and monitoring model
  • Financing plan and planning of a private sector cooperation model based on Public Private Partnership (PPP)
  • Related juridical studies
  • Integration of primary and secondary health care
  • Mapping of the best practices by benchmarking five European and North American university hospitals.
  • The scope of the project was unique, because it included the planning and building of an entire university hospital and the surrounding areas on a basically empty piece of land.
