First low-rise hospital

Flanders’ first low-rise hospital, built in Maaseik, comprises five buildings. Each has its own function and is connected to the other buildings via corridors and overhead bridges. There is the ‘hotel’ with wards and 226 beds, the ‘hotfloor’ with state-of-the-art technical facilities (operating theatre, emergency and intensive care), the ‘office’ for administration and consultations and the ‘factory’ with building facilities and services. Situated underneath the office building and the hotfloor is a car park with 313 spaces.
