The General Hospital of Mollet replaces the small municipal hospital in the city center and serves the 150,000 inhabitants of Mollet del Vallès and the surrounding communities in the Catalan county of Vallès Oriental. Located on the major ring road on the outskirts of the city, the hospital faces a large public park. With respect to the program, the functional distribution was based on ideas that the architects have developed and applied in other projects dealing with healthcare buildings. The hospital is conceived as a system that is capable of ordering the diverse services and subsystems that compose it. The hierarchy established in the circulation zones guarantees fluid movement for all the users of the building and also for the efficient management of the facility. Moreover, it is a flexible system that can be adapted to different functional demands in the future.
