LMS build skills: Health Centres


LMS Group designs and builds medical facilities, both public health facilities (polyclinics, outpatient clinics, hospitals) and private medical centres.

Polyclinics are socially significant infrastructure objects, which are built according to new standards where the most important is a high level of medical care, as well as comfort and safety of medical staff and patients.

Types and features of health centres

Policlinics differ in their level of subordination (district, city, regional). Multipurpose basic polyclinics are independent medical institutions, which provide services to inhabitants of a region or a city. You can get a wide range of medical services - from consultations with doctors of various specializations, to laboratory and instrumental tests, to inpatient care.

Health centres are furthermore divided into different types:

  • Outpatient clinics.
  • Special polyclinics (dental, cardiology, oncology).
  • Outpatient departments of hospitals and dispensaries.
  • Policlinics of educational institutions, industrial enterprises and large organisations.

The construction of a polyclinic is a complex task and the list of requirements for health care facilities is impressive. Regulatory acts establish requirements for the location and organisation of the building system, land, territory, composition and areas of internal premises, space planning solutions, lighting, engineering equipment, internal environment of the facility, and measures for fire, anti-terrorist, and environmental safety of the facility.

Modern polyclinics provide complex diagnostic examinations using high-tech equipment such as MRI, CT, and endoscopic procedures, which places special demands on the location, finishing and technical equipment of the rooms.

Peculiarities of the construction of polyclinics

The facility is built as one building with several floors or as a complex of buildings, connected by galleries. Depending on the expected number of visitors and specialisation, the structure must have the following mandatory structures:

  • A central entrance with a reception area and cloakroom.
  • Department for respiratory patients with symptoms of respiratory infection with a separate entrance.
  • Therapeutic areas.
  • Laboratory Diagnostics Department.
  • X-ray department, where complete radiation protection of staff and visitors should be ensured.
  • Physiotherapy department.
  • Instrumental Diagnostics Unit (MRI, CT Scanner, Ultrasound).
  • Day care unit.

All health care facilities must maintain class A cleanliness level. Therefore, smooth materials resistant to chemicals and UV radiation should be used for finish work.

Buildings must have good quality systems for natural and forced ventilation, air conditioning, water treatment, filtration and disinfection. Separate sanitary facilities for visitors and staff must be provided on each floor of the building. It is also important to provide easy navigation for visitors. The design includes ramps, lifts and lifts for disabled patients.
