From the architect. The Mafraq Dialysis Center featuring sixty eight dialysis treatment stations serves a critical need for the Middle Region of Abu Dhabi. Designed as the first of a series of dialysis treatment centers for SEHA , Abu Dhabi Health Services Company, the project stands as a symbol to the commitment of world class healthcare by the government of Abu Dhabi. Using this platform the Stantec design team was inspired to create a dynamic architectural prototype that could easily adapt to site and programmatic circumstance.

The patient centric design flips the conventional arrangement of the dialysis treatment beds from an inward orientation to an outward orientation allowing patient views to the landscape and access to natural light. Private dialysis stations with therapeutic chairs and flat screen televisions with feature movie programming allow for respectful care in a comfortable environment. The treatment “pods” each consisting of sixteen (16) back to back patient beds are positioned on each side of the building core and keep the floor plan efficient and functionally fit to purpose. This decentralization of the typically statistic nurse station configuration requires mobile nurse units that allow better visibility and attention to patients.

Articulated and layered façade elements combine with horizontal site walls to create an integrated dialogue between landscape and building. This interaction is further reinforced by the corner condition of the site which provided the opportunity to open the building form and create a welcoming entrance for visitors and patients. Glass facades incorporate a dynamic steel supported perforated metal sunscreen that veils the building from the harsh Middle Eastern sun while privacy to patients undergoing treatment.

SEHA’s new state of the art Mafraq Dialysis Center facility represents the new international standard for renal dialysis treatment, preventative education and dialysis training.
