Saskatoon City Hospital Saskatchewan, Canada Designed 1984, with Billington Poon, Folstad and Friggstad The 482-bed Saskatoon City Hospital reflects the change in hospital building philosophy since the 1970's. The diagnostic and treatment facilities, which require interstitial spaces between floors and flexibility within them, are located in a separate wing. Across a high public atrium- a welcome space in the cold prairie winter- is the less costly patient wing. This undulating wing is folded to give most rooms a park view. The form also decreases distances of rooms from the nursing stations, which are located at the folds. The trapezoidal diagnostic and treatment section is covered with painted corrugated metal, and the patient wing in ceramic tile.
