Los Arcos del Mar Menor University Hospital
The main façade, looking south, has two of the building's main innovations: a brise-soleil protecting the administration departments, designed with transparent photovoltaic cell panels, and a led's information panel 120 m. long (the longest in Europe, so far) which penetrates into the main hall, allowing to participate from its messages also inside the building. The implantation of the building follows the SE-NW axis of the plot. There are two levels of access to the building, with a floor between them. The hospital is laid out on four floors (ground+3), with the two highest (second and third) occupied by the inpatient units together with outpatient areas and consulting rooms and department offices. This layout (which is unusual in its sitting of outpatient services) enables of all each department's patient care and work areas to be grouped together, optimizing staff effectiveness and minimizing circulation.
