Kaiser Permanente, a leading not-for-profit health plan and care provider, invites students, designers, architects, engineers, and individuals everywhere to design a small hospital that evolves the way we deliver health care. Multidisciplinary teams are encouraged.
Continued success requires new thinking. We are appealing to the world's most talented minds to help design a revolutionary small hospital that can overcome the unique challenges of a small market (e.g., scarce resources and a shrinking pool of skilled clinical staff) and deliver exceptional, effective, and convenient care to our members. The hospital should have a near-zero impact on the environment.
Finalists will be compensated up to $750,000 to develop their concepts further. The final winner will be eligible to contract with Kaiser Permanente for the full design of the small hospital project.
