Imperial Medical Center of Iran

A comprehensive center incorporating patient care, health sciences education, and research, IMCI is designed to overcome the nationís dependence on important biomedical technology. It will serve not only the people of Iran, but a larger geographic area extending beyond the frontiers of the country as well. Itís educational components include graduate and undergraduate schools of medicine, nursing, dentistry, allied health sciences, health planning and management and an institute of continuing health sciences education. There is also a center for basic biomedical and clinical research with laboratory facilities, a 600-bed hospital, out patient and ancillary facilities. The comprehensive Biomedical Information Center housing the Pahlavi Medical Library will include direct computerized participation in the international Medical Literature analysis and Retrieval System, allowing a constant exchange with the world scientific community. Architecturally, IMCI is a contemporary response to the heritage of Iran, re-interpreting the traditional elements of space, water, light, gardens, vaulted ceilings and faceted mirror surfaces to create a complex at once functional and distinctive.
