The complex includes a 150-bedhospital and a 100-bed nursery home. It has five floors, basement, ground and first forming podium, and two upper nursing floors. This arrangement minimizes the circulations and facilitates the grouping of all health care areas, and staff working areas. Workforce optimization is achieved. In the lower floors there is a clear separation into three stripes of different uses: logistics, diagnosis / treatment, and outpatients. Geometry and courtyard distribution give natural light to the majority of spaces and improve flexibility. Next to the main entrance there are leisure, commercial and food service areas.
