  • Perkins&Will designed the Orlando Health Dorado for the Doctors’ Center Hospital in Dorado, Puerto Rico.

    Sabanera Health Dorado is the first new acute-care hospital in Puerto Rico in over 20 years. Located on the north shore, it provides high-quality care in a tranquil setting to a multi-economical community. This facility was developed to serve as a reliable health center for the communities of Dorado, where full-service healthcare facilities did not exist post-2017 hurricanes.

    By having an integral approach to the landscape and building elements, Sabanera Health Dorado provides an interconnected experience with nature, which enhances wellness and healing processes. The development offers increased access to daylight and views of nature including a central, expansive outdoor healing garden that all functional spaces have views and access to. Its ambitious hospitality and patient-driven design creates an elevated experience with tropical mountain views, vibrant colors and original local art.

    A focused investment towards an impactful, visual and experiential facility resulted in a tropical oasis, one that imparts a sense of luxury yet achieved through the most responsible means. At Sabanera Health Dorado, interior spaces are honed to the most essential programmatic elements, without compromising patient care and functionality. Designed for equitable communities, sustainability and well-being, this is a hospital that welcomes all in the community.
