Design


Due to the project’s magnitude, our goals and clear vision, the 500 500 Hospital was designed according to the latest and most comprehensive international standards. These standards in terms of engineering specifications, equipment and devices ensure holistic patient care. This was made possible through the finest international and Egyptian architecture and engineering companies. The project was designed by the US office of SOM in New York, which is one of the most experienced offices in hospital designs, specifically cancer research and treatment, in collaboration with Rafat-Miller (General) and the Egyptian company United Consultants (Medical).

Our belief in community responsibility and energy/environmental conservation has taken full account in our design. Therefore, we’ve implemented the highest standards of "LEED GOLD”, the "Green Pyramid" of Egypt and the use of solar energy throughout the project.



Treatment


Since the 500 500 Hospital is the new extension of the National Institute of Oncology, therefore it is considered a college in the University of Cairo that is responsible for the preparation and graduation of the best oncology staff. The 500 500 doctors, nurses and staff will all be a model of professionalism and expertise. They are trained to use the latest equipment and the best medical techniques. In addition, because 500 500 is the new extension of the National Institute of Oncology it will include oncologists with extensive experience specifically in the treatment of rare tumors and complex cases caused by other medical problems along with the cancer disease.

Much of our expertise and innovations will be utilized in performing operations, especially major operations through using the latest global technologies. We’ll be combining robots, telescopic equipment and other highly sophisticated devices. The 500 500 hospital will have 15 radiation machines (external and internal) including 2 Linear Accelerator rooms, the first of its kind in Egypt and the Middle East. Proton Therapy will also be used to treat patients effectively.



Facilities and patient care at 500 500


At 500 500 Hospital, our patients are considered part of the 500 500 family and are treated accordingly. Their comfort and health is our priority. We will provide anything that could help with their treatment as well as raise their spirit and family’s morale. The immune system is closely linked to the patient's mental state and modern medicine works best with a strong immune system. Also, the presence of the patient's family is necessary in improving his/her psychological condition as well as receive correct information about the disease and how to deal with the patient. 500 500 was designed to implement these concepts.

Every detail is important to us at 500 500 and the patient’s well-being is our top priority when making all decisions. Starting from the hospital design to the patients’ favorite food, all has been accounted for. We’ve ensured that everything will run smoothly for the patient beginning at the hospital gate until they depart our facilities cured and feeling well.



Outdoor Facilities


We have provided 5,200 parking spaces to maintain traffic flow and create the serenity necessary for patients’ well-being. The project is designed to provide an integrated community of services for all types of patrons including employees, patients, visitors, researchers and donors. There are a variety of areas suitable for all patrons including green spaces, work places, rest areas and children's play areas. We designed this hospital to meet the necessary needs of the evolving science of oncology.



Indoor Facilities


We designed vast waiting rooms that hold a large number of people and include necessary facilities that ease waiting time for patients and their families. In terms of décor, each wall color and furniture item was chosen due to its positive effect on the patients’ mental state. Each room has many facilities that ensure the patients’ comfort. In addition, having only one patient in each room ensures privacy and tranquility. We’ve installed energy saving air conditioners that operate on natural air that is not recycled. This amongst other amenities will positively affect patients’ health state.

We care about children especially because cancer can be very tough on them, which means they need special care. We designed a colorful and fun unit specifically for children to give them a positive and hope filled environment. We created areas for various educational and fun activities to fill their time as well as help them connect with other children who are facing the same health issues. The children’s unit consists of a play area, library and theater where they can enjoy themselves and forget their pain and long waiting times.

The 500 500 Hospital has taken special measurements to support people with special needs. Thus, adding all the facilities they may need inside the building or externally. In addition, we will provide them with suitable job opportunities such as managerial positions. This further proves the hospital's keenness on having an effective societal role.

Most of the time it is difficult for patients to accept food and they usually feel nauseous, so we designed a wholly functioning kitchen that prepares any dish the patients request at any time while keeping in mind their nutritional needs and health state..

We prioritized the patients’ comfort in all aspects and we will provide them and their companions with all that could ease their treatment period until they’ve been cured.
