American Hospital of Moscow
As a result of the popularity o their clinics with both the expatriate and local population, American Medical Center was asked to consider development of a hospital. As it started, Boris Yeltsin, President of Russia, needed a heart bypass surgery. AMC arranged for famed heart surgeon, Michael DeBakay, to supervise the surgery. As a result, President Yeltsin and Moscow Mayor, Yuri Luzhkor had AMC bring WQB Architecture to Moscow to work with the local architects and planners on the development of the Mockba City project along the Volga River. At that time the Health Code was comprised over 20 volumes of Codes related more to Hospice State and Modern treatment. WQB worked with local architects and government officials to update the Code for modern health services. The hospital was programmed and planned as a full service treatment center with 250 patients beds and 24 VIP high security beds.
