PROFESSOR Arch Vijay Munshi recently led a group of students from Smt Manoramabai Mundle College of Architecture from LAD campus to review the building design of Orange City Hospital and Research Institute (OCHRI) which houses 60 departments spread over in three buildings.


“Prudent utilisation of each inch of space had led me to recommend name of OCHRI to these students,” stated Dr Suhas Salpekar, renowned Urologist.


After visiting the hospital, the students concurred that in addition to the wide range of services that must be accommodated, hospitals must serve and support many different users and stakeholders. Ideally, the design process incorporates direct input from the owner, user and from key hospital staff early on in the process.


Highlighting this undertaking, Dr Anup Marar, Director (Administration) of OCHRI said that the basic form of a hospital is based on its functions like bed-related inpatient, outpatient, diagnostic, treatment, administrative, service, research and teaching.


Moreover it is a dynamic design since hospital buildings are continually expected to evolve in view of changes in laws, requirements, advancements etc., informs a press release issued here.


Roy Thomas, General Manager (Infrastructure) of OCHRI assisted by Priya Sashi and Ganesh Iyer coordinated the academic itinerary of the budding architecture students.
It was worth mentioning that various management, medical, architecture, human resources colleges depute their students to observe the indigenous practical ideas incorporated at OCHRI for smooth execution of day to day affairs. Architecture students appreciated the visit to Orange City Hospital.
