Encompassing a total land area of 44.00 acres, RRH Mongar serves as the principal referral center for the entire eastern region of Bhutan. The existing 100-bed hospital building is no longer fit to serve as a healthcare facility of any standard.
Taking cognizance of the urgent need for a modern healthcare facility in the region, the RGOB floated an international design competition in 2000, to identify and appoint a suitable design firm for the design of the new hospital building. After a rigorous selection process, AHEL’s design team was appointed as hospital design consultants for the project.
Within a master plan framework covering the entire 44.00 acres, the 1st phase of the project envisages the construction of the main hospital building and the development of the area around the hospital covering about 10.00 acres. The new hospital building with a total built-up area of 180,000.00 sqft is designed to accommodate 150 in-patient beds. The project was commissioned in April, 2008. The design of the hospital building incorporates all the necessary and mandatory traditional architectural features as required by the Royal Government of Bhutan.
