Principal Healthcare’s Services

Feasibility Studies

Feasibility Studies are essential when planning any new project and form the basis and foundation for successful project implementation. Principle Healthcare Company is the most experienced provider of feasibility studies and business plans for private clients, health authorities and hospitals in the ASEAN, we have developed a proven and robust methodology based on this experience. Principle Healthcare Company has also completed a wide range of international healthcare consultancy and advisory projects meeting its client’s specific needs. This has resulted in an impressive track record in the primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare sectors for private clients.

Converting the outline scope of services to be provided, as defined in a feasibility study, into a functional, safe, high quality and cost effective building design appropriate to local needs is a critical element of any project. This not only requires an in-depth knowledge of medical and other healthcare services, building design, architecture, mechanical and electrical and IT service provision but also a comprehensive understanding of how a hospital works on a day to day basis. Principle Healthcare Company brings these functions together and combines them with specific local requirements to ensure the hospital is suited to the environment in which it is constructed and delivers high quality healthcare delivery through cost effective low maintenance building solutions.

Functional Planning and Design

Principle Healthcare Company’s approach to healthcare planning and design is operationally led and evidenced based, driven by its focus on People, Functionality, and Site, each of which are key considerations in the creation of an appropriate and therapeutic environment. Principle Healthcare Company’s healthcare planners always carry out a needs-based assessment in conjunction with its clients to ensure the appropriateness of the healthcare facility to be designed and built. The well being of staff, patients, and their families is fundamental to the effective delivery of healthcare services and AMA aims to respond in a positive and flexible manner to the varying needs of these end users, in the knowledge that good design can accelerate the healing process.

Hospital Design

Functionality of the healthcare environment is obviously critical. Patients’ safety and the need to prevent hospital acquired infections remain the over-riding factors in hospital care. There is also however an increasingly recognised effect that the built space goes beyond utility. It is now acknowledged that the quality of the space affects the sick person’s path to recovery and their response to medication and advice.

Principle Healthcare Company is a market leader in terms of innovation and best practice in the healthcare sector. Through its long-standing and close contact with Hospitals and procurement bodies our teams maintain full awareness of emerging models of care, new technologies and design research applicable to international standards.

We seek to design and build environments which reinforce the concept of patient centred care by creating welcoming and non-institutional spaces and facilities, which maximise choice for patients with regard to privacy, dignity, comfort and support, in a manner which respects their needs, values, culture and background. We believe that good design can accelerate the healing process and contribute towards increased patient empowerment, improved care pathways, shorter waiting times and the integration of community outreach initiatives. The integration of evidence based design principles in our work significantly improves the quality and safety of patient care in terms of improving control of infection, comfort, amenity and working conditions, leading to increased patient satisfaction and staff morale

Construction Services and Project Management
