afes, clinics and day-hospital are integrated into the ample space bathed by natural light. Such pleasant space ends up "oxygenating" the user experience.
The stone cladded facade provides the necessary protection for the severe climate of Brazil, ensuring a highly sustainable performance with low maintenance.
The specialized rehabilitation areas and the restaurant are strategically placed on the third floor, facing the terrace on the top of the base of the project. This location allows them to open to the outside, towards the corner, and thus providing excellent views of the city, as well as giving access to a beautiful garden with diverse vegetation of native species and water mirrors. The quality of this space emerges as a green island within the urban context massively built and devoid of green areas.
Planned to promote the best environment for health practice, and located strategically in the center of all Southern hospitals, the MedVie Medical Center also facilitates and perfects the routines of all the professionals involved in the health functions of the center. Bringing together solutions in a single space, the complex is composed by environments designed for radiotherapy, radiology, endoscopy, pathology, laboratory, oncology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, cardiology, dermatology, pulmonary rehabilitation clinic, dentistry clinic, vaccine clinic, clinic aesthetics and Day-Hospital, in addition to drugstore, manipulation pharmacy, medical products stores, bank branch, cafeteria, leisure and food spaces. All of this is what makes the MedVie venture the state's most modern healthcare project, and unique in the region.
