The structural plan for the development of Thomayer University Hospital complex enabled long-term flexible planning of the reconstruction and completion of the complex focused on modernising the health facility, improving the quality of medical care provided, and increasing the effectiveness of its operation. Furthermore, the plan verified the possibilities of the using the complex for its intended purpose, and the capacities of the proposed facility. The whole of the complex is included as a public facility in the Prague territorial plan. The structural plan provided above all a patient reception system by establishing a central reception for patients and an emergency reception for the anaesthetic-resuscitation unit, imaging methods department and surgery rooms, including the central sterilisation unit, the location of a heliport, purposeful grouping of related medicine branches, and centralisation of outpatient care. The structural plan proposed the implementation of the majority of these services in a new building that was related to Kozák’s urban concept of “Masaryk Homes” social institutions. After reconstruction, the existing buildings were to be used for inpatient units and the operation of the polyclinic. The structural plan furthermore envisaged the erection and revitalisation of the administrative-technical zone, multi-storey car park, covered corridors for walking patients and employees, and underground corridors for the administrative activities. The need for teaching facilities was addressed as well. The structural plan further included: an assessment of the current situation, a draft transport and communication plan, a draft plan for administrative units, and an infrastructure concept – the main utility network routes and a landscaping evaluation and proposal. The project identified the main principles of the expected procedure for the reconstruction of new and existing structures in five stages on the assumption that the entire revitalisation programme would take place during regular hospital operation.
