Queen Alia Heart Institute

Located at the King Hussein Medical Center in Amman, Jordan, the Queen Alia Heart Institute has provided surgical and medical care for over two decades for the royal family, military and citizens of Jordan. 

Working with the local architects and the design architects, Frank Zilm & Associates, Inc. provided programming services in 1999 for a major 74,000 square foot addition to the building providing expanded outpatient services, critical care, Pharmacy, Respiratory Therapy, Day Care and Administrative service.  The core of the programming tasks were completed during a one-week planning charette using space models developed by Frank Zilm & Associates, Inc. for planning in both metric and imperial units of measure.

Design architect for the project was Heery International.  Local architecture and engineering was provided by Arabtech-Jardaneh.
