Hospital Regional de Alta Especialidad is a contemporary ceremonial center where one can honor the cult of good health and reestablish the balance between man and the environment. The design presents a form a triangular patio, bordered by a set of petrous prisms around a cenote that symbolize attention, knowledge and death.

The medical-architectural design contemplates 250 hospital beds, 40 medical offices, an auditorium for 300 people, 6 specialized medical units, auxiliary diagnoses and treatments, government and general services.

Based on the research of Roger S. Ulrich and his search for a comprehensive design, aspects are included that prioritize patients over mechanical functioning. Patient rooms and medical offices face north; lobbies, circulation areas and medical office waiting rooms have a controlled natural lighting and ventilation. The auxiliary diagnosis and treatment area in the conventional form of a solid-topped block, is broken into five bodies separated by green areas to allow natural light and provide a reference to nature for patients in intensive therapy and recovery services.
