This building in its external aspect is designed radially adapted to the terrain and with three volumes linked together, that we will call “wings”,  through a central communications hub connected to the so-called “central body”, all finished with clean materials in blind panels of stone plates, and naked brick and aluminium carpentry with a geometrical composition straight-lined.

The 1st and 2nd floors of the hospital, located in the wings, project mostly over the ground floor, to obtain greater surface in the rooms and they have singularly small balconies.

The roof is flat and walkable, waterproofed over the entire
building, the central body being where the installations are located. This roof is surrounded by a lattice to soften its impact. In this core, and with the same objective, there Is a parapet that crowns the building, like a cornice.

The entrance area between two of the wings on the ground floor, has a box-like structure that projects from the façade with a large overhang like a porch, with aluminium on the exterior the same as the vertical panel of the facade  of the communications hub where It Is supported.
