In addition, the new development includes a central hospital complex with eight floors, including two underground levels with approximately 400 parking spaces.
The main hospital building of the complex, also called hospital one, offers a wide range of advanced medical services with facilities such as emergency receptions for children and women, polyclinics, operating theatres, delivery rooms, intensive care units, and educational spaces for child patients.
Besides, this hospital building in Sušak will consolidate the hospital’s facilities from the Kantrida site and the Clinic for Gynecology and Obstetrics from the Rijeka site.
It will also unite the central laboratory premises, including the Clinical Institute for Transfusion Medicine, Clinical Institute for Laboratory Diagnostics, Clinical Institute of Microbiology, Clinical Institute of Pathology and Cytology, as well as dedicated space for voluntary blood donors.
The buildings are connected to the existing main building by heated passageways, and the complex is equipped with 19 elevators, including a panoramic one.
