Roatán Island lies around 35 miles off the coast of Honduras, and is home to a population of some 100,000 people—yet its outdated hospital has only 38 beds. According to Dr. Raymond Cherrington, a family physician at the hospital, this means that there are sometimes three patients in a single bed, creating a situation that is not only uncomfortable but hazardous as close proximity heightens the risk of infection. But, with support from non-profit Global Healing and architecture firm HKS, 27 environmental design students at Texas A&M have created seven proposals for a new, larger facility that is designed to suit the needs of doctors and patients alike, while addressing the particular needs of the Honduran climate.
