AIA Chicago has recognized the Tata Main Hospital in Jamshedpur, India with a Citation of Merit as part of its 2014 Design Excellence Awards.
The Tata Main Hospital creates public healthcare for the population of the Jamshedpur region. The 1,600 bed replacement hospital is designed as an integrated health campus that embodies clinical best practices and creates a modern vision for mass delivery of healthcare in a rapidly industrializing part of the world. The campus is designed as a series of large elevated green parks shaded from the intense climate. These parks create proximate green lungs to the hospital as an industrial city. The hospital will serve the people of Jamshedpur, their families and employees of Tata Steel for the next century.
The AIA Chicago Design Excellence Awards seek to recognize significant achievements in the planning, design and execution of recent building projects.
