Galeazzi Sant'Ambrogio Hospital

Galeazzi Sant'Ambrogio Hospital

GKSD is responsible for the design, construction and operation of the new state-of-the-art Galeazzi Sant’Ambrogio Hospital in Milan. Situated in the area that hosted EXPO in 2015, 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 combines GSD’s medical excellence in a surface area of over 150,000 mq.

Uniting the orthopaedic excellence of IRCCS Galeazzi and the cardio-thoracic/vascular and bariatric expertise of the Sant’Ambrogio Clinical Institute the new Galeazzi Sant’Ambrogio Hospital is a large multi-specialist facility capable of offering patients the highest degree of care.

The new hospital

The new hospital construction has used the most modern and efficient solutions in terms of energy saving and environmental sustainability, minimising not only waste and consumption, but also noise and pollution emissions.

The materials chosen are eco-friendly and have 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 heat regulation will be guaranteed. In order to minimise the impact on the city’s electricity grid, the use of photovoltaic and solar thermal systems is adopted on the entire surface of the roof of the new Galeazzi Sant’Ambrogio Hospital.

The systems (water, electricity, air treatment) are deployed in a way that minimises consumption, avoids waste and dispersion, and uses resource and energy recuperators wherever possible in order reduce all types of emissions.

Harmonious Design

Great emphasis is paid to making the interior spaces of the hospital comfortable and patient centred. Natural lighting is used in most of the rooms, which are open, permeable to light and equipped with large windows and outside views.

Opaque railings ensure the protection of patients and operators in the wards and in the diagnosis and treatment areas. The external structure is a clean white and warm colour shades adorn the interior.
