The RS Pondok Indah Bintaro Jaya Hospital is a private hospital in Jakarta with 230 beds. The hospital was built in two stages and is part of the Bintaro Masterplan, which prioritizes circulation, water-sensitive design, and landscaped connections. The hospital is designed to integrate health, wellness, and community and is part of a larger development that includes green corridors, mixed-use commercial buildings, retail, short-stay facilities, and residential developments. The hospital’s design pays homage to the terraced rice fields of Southeast Asia and celebrates water and the tropical nature of Indonesia. The inpatient towers are sculptural and sit on top of a podium with undulating bands of green shelves, planter boxes, and metal panel overhangs.

The design is intended to represent first-class healthcare services for local and international patients and a patient-centered approach that encapsulates the client’s service and quality excellence. Evidence-based design and sustainability were embedded into the design, with access to natural light maximized, staff travel distances minimized, and large glazed windows framing patient views from bedrooms. The hospital incorporates a variety of green attributes, such as sustainable sites initiatives, water and energy efficiencies, and Environmental Impact Analysis. The hospital includes retail, pharmacy, medical imaging, emergency department, outpatient clinics, inpatient units, dental and rehabilitation services, operating suites, education auditorium, maternity and pediatric units, special care nursery, consulting rooms, administration areas, staff dining and lounge areas. The hospital currently has 100 inpatient beds open, with the opportunity to expand to 230 beds when fully complete. The hospital also boasts innovations in delivering the utilization of advanced medical technology and the digital paperless information system.
