Eco-Green Public Hospital in San Roque City, Northern Samar: A Project-Based Proposal
Hospitals play a large part in our life. It cures our illness. Many hospitals are built around the cities where fresh air is lacking. Fresh air is the most important thing that is needed by every human, especially patients during their healing process. Hence, this study aimed to build a miniature of an eco-green public hospital in San Roque City, Northern Samar to determine the level of acceptability. Quantitative research was used as the research design for the study while utilizing a random sampling to gather respondents in assessing the level of acceptability of the Eco-Green Hospital miniature. Using a questionnaire, the researchers surveyed to determine whether the proposed project is acceptable in terms of feasibility, structural design, concept, and presentation. The results of the study in terms of feasibility, structural design, concept, and presentation were highly acceptable, as assessed by graduating Architecture students and Civil Engineering students. Results indicated no significant difference between the assessment of the two groups of respondents in terms of the cited variables. Graduating Architecture students obtained an overall weighted mean of 3.75, which was interpreted as highly acceptable with a variance of 0.008. Meanwhile, the graduating Civil Engineering students obtained an overall weighted mean of 3.65, which was interpreted as highly acceptable with a variance of 0.009. Both groups had a t-computed value of 2.5 and a degree of freedom of 28 with a value of 2.763. The t-computed value was less than the t-critical one. As a result, the assessments of the two groups of respondents were accepted. The subsequent discussions forwarded by the two groups of respondents are as follows: use cheaper and durable materials on the walls to improve the appearance, add colors on the building that will complement with green scenery of the garden, and read more about plants that can be used in the hospital.
