Bumrungrad International Clinic Honoured at 2008 Asia Pacific interior Design Awards

Bumrungrad International Clinic has received international recognition for its design at the 16th Asia Pacific Interior Design Awards.
Bumrungrad International Clinic has received international recognition for its design at the 16th Asia Pacific Interior Design Awards. The Clinic, which opened in July, was designed by dwp (design worldwide partnership), a leading Thailand-based design company.

For its design, dwp won a silver prize in Institution & Public Space Category at the Asia Pacific Interior Design Association (APIDA) presentation ceremony, held on
November 5th at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center. The event, organized by the Hong Kong Interior Design Association (HKIDA), recognizes outstanding design achievements and ethics among interior design practices operating in the Asia Pacific
region.
The Clinic was designed to double the hospital’s capacity to 6,000 outpatients per day. Innovative technology, new services and amenities, and a relaxing environment have been designed to make it a comfortable and convenient place for patients to see their doctors.

Mounting scientific evidence has shown that environmental characteristics influence patient health outcomes. Many studies, including a recent report by the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, show that well-designed hospital environments can reduce patient anxiety, lower blood pressure, and lessen pain, while increasing quality of care and staff retention.

Mack Banner, Bumrungrad’s CEO, said, “It is an honor to have our Clinic recognized by this prestigious international award. We appreciate the opportunity to work with a great partner like dwp. We look forward to the next phase of work, which will include upgrading clinics and patient rooms in our main building.”

Sarinrath Kamolratanapiboon, Business Development Director of dwp Thailand said, “We are proud of our achievement and honored to receive this award category. This is testament to Thailand’s design industry capabilities. This truly is rewarding and encouraging to our entire team at dwp.”
