Finnish furniture manufacturer Isku recently did a project with Acibadem Healthcare Group in Istanbul for their new Maslak Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey. Isku utilizes antimicrobial materials to support hygiene management protocols and efficiently eliminating microbes from surfaces 24/7. This means that the surfaces’ antimicrobial materials work continuously, also in between cleaning cycles. The children’s playroom has been a great success with Isku furniture.
At Maslak Hospital in Instanbul, the overall atmosphere in the pediatrics department is colorful and allows the children to enjoy a range of activities from drawing to watching videos and playing with toys. The design of the pediatrics lobby is divided into two sections – one for healthy children and one for ill children to minimize the chances of cross contamination.
Acibadem’s philosophy is very patient centric which has been considered in the architecture and hospital design. Vast spaces, lounges and quiet rooms for gatherings are constructed across the hospitals to enable loved ones to wait and comfortably pass time while patients are taken care of.
