As a society, the pandemic presents us with constant challenges, and one of the most pressing is caring for the sick. Since the emergence of COVID-19, Sacyr has worked on several hospitals in an effort to alleviate the situation caused by the pandemic.
Our company’s latest project was to renovate and refurbish the old Seville Military Hospital (Spain) in record time. The facility, which re-opened on February 1, boosts the capacity for specialized care in the fight against COVID-19 in Andalusia.
The project, awarded by the Andalusian Health Service (SAS), included the renovation of seven floors housing 144 general-unit beds and 25 ICU beds, in addition to the creation of a dedicated space for COVID-19 patients. All in all, we renovated an area that spans 17,000 m2.
The floors are organized in an orderly layout, with imaging and x-ray rooms on the first floor; an 800 m2 ICU at the southern end of the second floor; air, gas, and recycling machinery on the third floor; and general hospital units on the fourth, fifth, and sixth floors.
