Matsuyama Red Cross Hospital

The Matsuyama Red Cross Hospital faced numerous challenges, including deterioration of its facilities, cramped facilities due to an expansion of medical functions, and severe damage from the Geiyo Earthquake in 2001. Additionally, the hospital was far behind the government’s low-carbon society model and vision for Japanese cities. With an aging population, and a declining birth rate, the importance of constructing a new hospital that would enable residents to “live with relief” became increasingly apparent.
