|Monaco-based Russian billionaire businessman and hobbyist architect Vasily Klyukin recently unveiled his plan to construct an upmarket hospital and spa that closely resembles a ship. Klyukin hopes that the White Sails Hospital and Spa will become "the world's first hospital that no one is afraid to visit." The idea is to make a building that's more friendly and welcoming than traditional hospitals. The idea was apparently born from Klyukin's own personal experience of going to hospitals to be checked for his upcoming ride on Virgin Galactic:
"I will fly into Space next year. My health condition has to be checked every six months. That is why I know this feeling very well,- every time I'm approaching the white building of the clinic, I don't feel any joy. But I would like to show you the hospital, where there is no room for fear. And so that my son could ask about this hospital: "Daddy, when will we visit the ship again?""
