Victoria Hospital is one of the major hospitals of the island. Housed in ancient military barracks scattered all over a huge campus and linked with an intricate network of covered corridors, the hospital is since old obsolete. Several attempts of having a master plan have been made but to no avail. The last attempt to at least implement part of the master plan was to launch a design competition for a Central Outpatient Department whose objective was to group administration and all outpatient departments scattered all over the place under one building and liberate the old barracks for subsequent implementation on the master plan designed in collaboration with international hospital consultants FGG Architects. Our proposal was unanimously declared winner of the design competition. Works started in 2003. Political interference to modify the purpose of the building delayed the works. Finally the project houses A & E department, some outpatient departments, medical records, pharmacy, conference facilities and new requirements of the ministry : a neuro-surgical unit with its accompanying inpatient facilities.
