A healthcare facility is more than just a building – it is a place that touches patients and their families at critical moments in their lives. At WSP, we put people at the centre of our designs to create warm and supporting environments for patients, visitors and staff.



Creating People-Centric Facilities

Working with public and private sector clients, WSP delivers integrated services for major acute hospitals (from greenfield campus to refurbishment of existing inner-city hospitals), specialist facilities including cancer centres, children's hospitals, mental health units and healthcare-related research facilities including future-focused laboratories.

 

From civil engineering and in-ground services to building structure and façade design – and from mechanical and electrical design to support for critical and complex clinical services – we provide people-centric, fully-integrated services for optimum patient and practitioner outcomes.

 

Our experts understand what it takes to create a world-class facility. From accommodating state-of-the-art technologies alongside complementary cancer therapies to meeting the diverse needs of acute care patients under one roof, or making sure children’s clinics have tamper-proof features; we know how to tailor global best practice to suit every project. Our goal is always to deliver the most sustainable, efficient solutions, so that our clients can offer the best possible care to their communities – today and for the future.

 

We work closely with healthcare teams to understand the patient journey and align our design approach to it. From inspiring structures that lift the spirits to visual clues that aid wayfinding, we never forget the details that can make a vital difference to patients and visitors. The result is buildings that truly promote recovery.
