An innovation in hospital design? (Archinect)

The article suggests that this design breaks new ground in healthcare design but whilst I can relate to the use of courtyards for natural light and how the building sits comfortably in context, I am not sure that this is as innovative as suggested.

It is difficult with only limited images but the architecture is more akin to a slick air terminal or corporate HQ and whilst the courtyards are successful, they do not appear to be easily accessible and are austere in execution.

However the building’s sterility perhaps is apt?
