Cluj-Napoca Emergency Clinical Children’s Hospital will function as an independent structure, with regional addressability, being the first public hospital in the Transylvania area to offer integrated medical services in the field of paediatrics. Through this approach, Cluj County Council aims to develop a centre for medical services and research in the field of paediatrics, which also plays the role of an urban catalyst in an area undergoing urbanization.
Thus, the project brings along the chance to provide an example of best practice both in terms of medical architecture and with regards to the urban development of an area currently in an early stage of development.
