The starting point for designing the public health center was its integration into the whole complex of the hospital center. A building has been designed with basement, ground floor and a single floor. The building is made up of three large pieces, each one with rooms and a common hall. Each piece is surrounded by green areas that qualify the interior spaces. The precise work with the natural light and the choice of warm materials gives the structure a homeliness that can satisfy the needs of the residents of the Centre who, given that they must spend long periods of time in the building, should feel “at home”.

The new building has a geriatric medium and long-term inpatients unit with 22 rooms, a psychogeriatric inpatients unit with 22 rooms and a psychogeriatric dementia inpatients unit with 21 rooms. There is also a geriatric day center and a dementia day center, each with a capacity for 25 places, and which share services such as reception, medical offices and nursing, rehabilitation room, storage spaces… Finally, there is a geriatric and dementia diagnosis and evaluation unit that is made up of five offices, a waiting room, and a meeting room.
