New Campos Salles Facility

Alcla doubles its infrastructure and capacity by opening a new facility with the highest standards of quality and technology.

This second site, located at Campos Salles 2,264, CABA, has an area of 2,538 m2 and 42 new beds, which, together with the beds at Vuelta de Obligado building, will bring the total number of beds available to 96.

The project and design of this building was developed by Alvarado Font Sartorio Architecture Studio, one of the most renowned nationwide in the field of healthcare architecture.

The functional areas are distributed in different spaces: Inpatient, Rehabilitation, Special Care Unit and Technical Support Services.

The new facility is linked to and complements Vuelta de Obligado building, for which a master plan was developed to enable functional integration between both, expanding and improving support areas and common services.

Quality, comfort and technology to serve the rehabilitation process.

Special emphasis was placed on offering the best patient experience in terms of building quality, technology, infrastructure, convenience and comfort, which, together with medical care quality, make up the highest standard of excellence for the rehabilitation center segment in the country.

Due to the patients’ characteristics, most of them with a prognosis of prolonged hospitalization, special attention was given to creating cozy and comfortable spaces that provide the necessary support, care and stimulation throughout their stay and rehabilitation process. Elements and spaces such as the lighting, the nursing office, floor and bathroom materials were designed with all the safety and support elements for patients with motor difficulties. First class and efficient materials were used, including PVC and padded floors for impacts, in the rehabilitation gyms.

The aesthetics and style of these areas are designed to resemble a comfortable place of everyday life, minimizing the hospital appearance to make them feel at home.

Efficient use of resources

The building is partially sustainable, enabling the saving and efficient consumption of all its resources. All rooms face the front, thus ensuring excellent natural light, which in turn contributes to energy savings.

Different sustainability and environmental protection criteria have been adopted and applied.

  • Bioclimatic and passive solar design in the façade using a micro-perforated plate installed on the entire front of the building that regulates the incidence of solar rays and visibility.
  • Energy efficiency: as a passive element. All exterior aluminum window frames have THERMAL BRIDGE BREAKER and DOUBLE GLAZING, a system that prevents heat or cold from being transmitted into the building.
  • Central computerized intelligent control system that controls and manages the air conditioning temperature individually in each room, isolated from the central temperature of the building, resulting in greater efficiency. It also controls and regulates all the building’s installations, including the intelligent lighting control, which can be turned on and off in common areas through motion sensors and can even be regulated according to the time of year.
  • Rawland Call System in rooms and bathrooms connected to the Nursing Office for:
    • Greater functionality and connectivity.
    • Greater efficiency in the Voice response.
    • Measurement and control of the speed of response in patient care.
