La Paz Medical Center
Malabo, Equatorial Guinea

A 27,000 square meter comprehensive medical campus in Malabo, the capital of Equatorial Guinea, the only advanced medical facility in this major city. The self-sustaining campus includes a hospital, staff residences and community center, as well as a hotel and auxiliary buildings.

The multidisciplinary medical building includes an ER, out-patient clinics, imaging department, dialysis unit, ICU, cardiac center, orthopedics, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, surgical wing with 4 operating theaters, pre- and post op units, 2 labor and delivery rooms, Caesarean operating room, neo-natal department, NICU, and 3 in-patient departments of 38 beds each.  
The auxiliary buildings include a logistics building, power plant, staff housing and community center. A superpharm and hotel are located at the outskirts of the site to allow access to guests from outside the campus.
