It will have two buildings that house more than 200 medical clinics, a hospital with capacity for more than 100 beds in private rooms, commercial area, professional offices, apartments and more than 1500 parking units.

The project is located at the intersection of three important axes of the capital, thus offering great access flexibility with a new overpass to separate the city’s traffic from hospital access. The distribution proposes that the public, educational and commercial areas be located on the access street … it is organized with the public, educational and commercial areas towards the access street, thus protecting the hospital area from the noise of the cars.

Patient recovery beds are located to the west, facing a green area with an uninterrupted view of the city and the mountains in the distance. The clinic towers are connected to the hospital, offering a great flexibility of services and uses for doctors and patients. The facades will have a great transparency to take advantage of the views offered by the land, and will be covered with external solar protections to protect the interior spaces from the heat of the sun. The terraces of the buildings and their roofs will become accessible and public green areas for the use of doctors and rest of patients, thus integrating the mountain and its surroundings.
