GKSD is responsible for the design, construction and operation of the new state-of-the-art Galeazzi hospital in Milan. Situated in the area that in 2015 hosted the EXPO, the structure is a towering 90 metres in height. Architecturally and environmentally innovative, it is the hospital of the future and a beacon of technology, research and teaching that will combine GSD’s medical excellence in a surface area of over 150,000mq.
Bringing together the excellence in orthopedic field of IRCCS Galeazzi and the experience gained in the cardio-thoraco-vascular and bariatric field of the Sant'Ambrogio Clinical Institute, the new Galeazzi will present itself to patients as a large multi-specialist facility capable to offer the highest degree of care.
The new hospital will be built using the most modern and efficient solutions in terms of energy saving and environmental sustainability, minimizing not only waste and consumption, but also noise and polluting emissions.
The materials chosen will be eco-friendly and healthy, with the ability to absorb smog through atmosphere purification and self-cleaning techniques. Furthermore, with regard to the quality of the coatings, specifically-designed solutions to manage thermoregulation will be guaranteed. In order to minimize the impact on the city electricity grid, the use of photovoltaic and / or solar thermal systems is envisaged on the entire surface of the roof of the new Galeazzi, while the systems (e.g. water, electricity, air treatment) will be adopted in such a way as to minimize consumption, avoid waste and dispersion, use resource or energy recuperators where possible and reduce all types of emissions.
Great attention is also paid to comfort, the humanization of the interior spaces and natural lighting: most of the rooms will be open, permeable to light, equipped with large windows and views of the outside.
Instead, opaque railings will be used to ensure the protection of patients and operators located in the wards or in the diagnosis and treatment areas. The colors of the structure will be clear, declined on warm shades.
As said, the Hospital will be ca. 100 meters high and will have 600 hospital beds (with space to employ up to 300 beds in addition, for a full capacity of circa 900 beds). The Hospital will be composed of 16 floors and it is expected to open to patients in Q1 2023.
