Curicó, Linares and Chillán are located in the centre of Chile, south of the country's capital, in the foothills of the Andes mountain range. The project for these Red Sur hospitals is built as a standard building that must be configured according to the needs of each place and each plot. For this reason, each hospital is based on an orthogonal grid mesh of 8 meters on each side that adapts to the different standardization requirements and to the spaces repetition. The construction process is also standardized to facilitate the building’s functional adaptability.
In the development of these hospitals, a structural and constructive anti-seismic design was fundamental; thus, an elastomeric seismic insulation system with high damping is provided, arranged at the basal level of each building. Furthermore, each hospital has a building for clinical support and therapeutic diagnosis; and another building was designed for patient-care spaces, operating independently but in direct relation with the main building.
