Cosign solutions meet the need & standard of Amrita Hospital
Amrita Hospital is one of the well-known names in the healthcare space, not only in India but worldwide. Recognizing the importance of a good signage system in creating a comfortable patient experience, the architects’ team involved in the hospital design focused serious attention to its signage system design. In the project, Cosign delivered high-quality signage solutions. Here’s the story.
Headquartered in Kochi, Amrita Hospital is one of the largest medical facilities in India with a built-up area of more than 3.33 million sq ft, spreading over a gross area of 125 acres. It supports an annual patient volume of around 800,000 outpatients and 50,000 inpatients.
Extending the same vision, Amrita Hospital in Faridabad is one of the country’s largest private hospitals. Spreading across 130 acres area, it has 2,600 beds, 81 specialties, 64 fully-networked modular operation theaters, and smart ICUs with 534 critical-care beds. It also has state-of-the-art fully-automated smart laboratories, the most advanced medical imaging services in the country, and the latest in cardiac and interventional cauterization labs for clinical services.
The Amrita standard
Amrita Hospital has a very clear vision of providing the highest quality care using the latest technological innovations, while still being an icon for compassion as well as being affordable for people from all strata of society. Paying attention to the importance of a signage system, Faridabad branch of the hospital implemented a state-of-the-art system that helps create a comfortable patient experience.
There were several important factors considered when Amrita Hospital in Faridabad selected the signage system partner. They checked the company’s ability to create and provide a large volume of signs in a very short period. The look of the signage needed to be premium and high quality in keeping with the global brand of Amrita Hospitals. Cosign fulfilled the criteria! The hospital needed as many as 11,000+ signages of different types and sizes. Limiting the sign types to ensure easy change, there were only 11 types for indoor signs and 8 types for outdoor signs.
It was important to ensure consistency in the whole signage solutions – even when more signages are added as per the growing needs of the hospital. For future hospitals, Amrita Hospital needed a signage partner like Cosign that could provide the same quality and type of signages. The signage solutions needed to be very easy to maintain. For specific signages like doctor directories or department names, it was important to be able to easily change a few names or departments without changing the whole sign.
