Health meets City

Graduation Project 2022
ענת מורדרר

This project discusses the connection between city and medicine, considering changing trends in healthcare systems that concern the economy, community, and technology.

Throughout history, facilities where patients undergo treatment have changed. However, the distance between the medical environment and the day-to-day life of the patient has remained the same.

Recent technological advancements, and more recently the COVID-19 virus, accelerated processes that better define the connection between health, home, and community. Hence, the human capacity to embrace medial patients in their communities has grown.

Although Israeli Healthcare Services are considered among the best in the world, we can clearly see how private healthcare offers better services than public healthcare, thus surpassing it in growth and public perception. Due to this, we discuss the necessary paradigm shift in the integration of healthcare in the city.

This proposal relies on the development of more intensive intermediate spaces in medicine, specifically the Ichilov Hospital in the city of Tel Aviv. This system suggests breaking the barrier between medicine and the city and integrating medical residence and public spaces.
