Graphic Panel, New Redemption Hospital, 2017

This is a Graphic panel. It is dated 2017. It is a part of the department.

Since 2010, MASS Design Group has worked with the Liberia Ministry of Health in Africa on numerous projects. The masterplan for the New Redemption Hospital in Caldwell aims to avert future epidemics and deliver comprehensive services to a growing population.

The New Redemption Hospital faces the prevailing wind to facilitate natural cross-ventilation. Solar chimneys enhance patient comfort by cooling the wards with fresh air from a microclimate created by the facility's planted courtyards and adjacent natural wetlands. Air inside the hospital is replaced with outside air 12 times per hour, a rate considered optimal for hospitals.

Its dimensions are

H x W: 167.6 × 167.6 cm (5 ft. 6 in. × 5 ft. 6 in.)
