Rocio’s Hospital, Brazil by Manoel Coelho Arquitetura e Design-2014

With this in mind, the hospital construction seeks intensive natural light optimization and explores maximum connection between internal and external environments, such as views for the external naturally preserved forest of araucaria, typical pine trees from ParanĂ¡. The landscaping project also includes nearly 5 thousand square meters of garden tiles to enhance internal movement and visuals of work and hospitalization environments. The service structure includes 2 image and diagnosis centers for performing exams, 2 emergency units, a surgery ward with more than 30 rooms, and an outpatient department which is expected to provide 30 thousand consultations per month, among other services.

There is also an auditorium for 350 people that can be used to host medical congresses and other events.These axes lead the main hospital services to be performed on the ground floor, including an emergency unit, an image and diagnosis center, ICUs, surgical centers, a sterile services department, a general pharmacy, a cafeteria, etc. The upper levels encompass the areas of hospitalization such as apartments and en-suites, as well as administrative areas and an auditorium.
