The Bajcsy-Zsilinszky Hospital was founded in 1932 on the east side of Budapest, serving as a state-of-the-art medical facility from the time it was opened. Following World War II, its specialties were expanded, with more departments added. This somewhat rough but ultra-modern design, very much reminiscent of the tactile and forward-thinking works of the Finnish sculptor-medalist, Kauko Räsänen, captures the modern approach to medicine that the hospital represented upon its inception.
