Leeuwenkamp Architecten about this project:

In consultation with the users, a logistics optimum hospital has been designed that consists of four main building sections: main entrance – outpatient clinic and offices – clinics and bed house – hot floor. Each building part with separate installations and functionalities. An important requirement was the flexibility of the building because healthcare is changing so quickly. Consider e-health, the division of roles between hospital and primary care.

In the design of the new Ommelander Hospital Groningen in Scheemda, attention was paid to creating a healing environment. Use of color, materials, high-tech where necessary, domestic where possible. The outpatient clinic is spacious and uncluttered, with a view of the vast surroundings through the many windows. A pleasant hospital when it comes to the layout of functional spaces, with an eye for walking lines and the possibility of clustering departments. The single and double rooms offer a lot of privacy and the layout of the outpatient clinic is designed so that doctors walk to patients instead of the other way around.
