The new acute-care hospital of Monselice – Este fulfills the requirement of rationalization of the care structures in the territory by realizing a Unique Healthcare Complex that is a point of reference for the entire Southern Area of Padua.
The hospital is situated in an area of 257.000 m2, not far from the Southern extension of the Euganei Hills, in a strategic position that makes it easily reachable for all the localities in the territory. The integration of the structure into the landscape context was valorized by an architectural solution which interprets, by means of a series of waves on the roofing, the ratio between the large building structure and the surrounding landscape.
The structure is made up of three main bodies with a total gross surface of approximately 114.000 sqm. that shelter the services of diagnosis, care and hospital stay for about 410 ordinary beds, 72 beds in day hospital and 27 operating rooms.
From a functional perspective, the project aimed at optimizing the visitors and patients admission and sorting conditions towards the care and accommodation areas, in order to put into practice a real humanization of the hospital and guarantee, at the same time, operating flexibility so as to respond to program, technical and social evolutions occurring in the future life of the hospital.
