Two longitudinal blocks staggered in height are attached to the current hospital giving a new facade to the city. A new pedestrian street is projected rendering an internal boulevard that gives access to both the new Mother and Children Hospital and the General Hospital in level -1. The structure of internal circulations is properly differentiated by separating the clinical and public spaces, favoring the interrelation between both in the outpatient areas. Horizontal relationships are prioritized, this way, gynecological and obstetric areas are located in parallel and at different levels of the pediatric and newborn areas.
