This private hospital, with 270 beds overlooking El Musel harbour, was engaged in ongoing modernization of its facilities in order to offer a better service to its clients. CASA undertook the phase planning of the management’s objectives. The first project defined the reform and extension of the existing surgery block and the adjacent sterilization and post-surgery recovery areas. The scheme remodelled all of the existing area, extending it with the addition of a linear volume on the south façade. In the second phase, the aim of the intervention was to extend and remodel part of the building in order to improve its functional characteristics and catering facilities. The inpatient units were extended by adding three new floors to the North block, and a six-storey volume to the East wing. The roof of the top floor of this wing has also been altered to accommodate a new inpatient unit. The last works included a new Radiotherapy service, with two 23 MeV accelerators, and a new master plan to increase ambulatory activities in 20,000 sqm.
