Vicky and Joseph Safra Pavilion, Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein
São Paulo, Brazil
This facility was the first health care project in Brazil to achieve LEED Gold certification. Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein’s (HIAE) physicians and administrative leaders looked to top U.S. hospitals as the ultimate global standard as they planned for a new major outpatient and physicians’ office building that embraced the Planetree principles for patient-centered care. Departing from the standard Brazilian practice of incorporating outpatient services within a centralized hospital facility was essential to meeting their goals.
The Vicky and Joseph Safra Pavilion, a sustainable outpatient services facility, houses a state-of-the-art, minimally invasive surgery center, medical offices, outpatient diagnostic imaging and laboratory services. Kahn’s iconic building design blended styles of the campus’ existing traditional and modern buildings. A broad public plaza beckons to visitors at the entrance level. Far overhead, rooftop gardens offer respite to patients and their families.
