Maternal Instincts
Healthcare architecture firm Jonathan Bailey Associates completes the construction for Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies in Orlando, Florida USA.

The $111 million, 400,000 square-foot is the latest addition to the Arnold Palmer Medical Centre and expands the centre’s women and neonatal intensive care services. It has a patient capacity of 576 beds. It also houses the Hughes Centre for Fetal Diagnostics.

The whole set-up is remincient of the classical design concept of axial symmetry. The new triangular based-edifice emphasises the centre cluster of towers that resemble radiating apsis. Semi-circular modules that surround these towers house auxiliary service facilities.

The hospital opened its doors to patients May 30, 2006.
