Building specialisation The National Institute of Cancer is currently comprised of five buildings – administrative, outpatient clinic, hospitalisation, storage room and nuclear medicine – in which all the oncology services are housed. However, these buildings also contain services that do not correspond to the function they should have. They have become disorganised which hinders the circulation between and around the buildings. Taking into account the construction of

the outpatient service building, the Master Plan proposes a general rearrangement project for the six buildings that make up the Institute, giving each one of them a specialty in terms of the service that the building will contain. Furthermore, each service shall undergo an internal rearrangement in order to improve its conditions. Two general problems arise in terms

of the arrangement of the two main services, namely outpatient clinic and hospitalisation. The first problem is that the outpatient clinic service is located in two different places of the Institute, which hinders the concentration of ambulatory patients. The solution to this is to

concentrate the outpatient clinic service within the new outpatient services bulding, concentrating these patients in one place. The second problem is that the

hospitalisation service is intervened and mixed with other services such as rehabilitation, outpatient clinic and clinical laboratory. The solution to this is to dedicate as many floors as possible to hospitalisation, removing other services, which, for the most part, will be relocated to the new outpatient service building and other buildings with services related to the transfers of the outpatient service.

The current situation of the five buildings of the Institute l Building 1 (heritage): This has three floors and contains the services of administration, outpatient clinic and research.

l Building 2 (outpatient clinic): This has six floors and contains the services of outpatient clinic, blood bank and emergency department.

l Building 3 (hospitalisation): This has seven floors and contains the services of hospitalisation, chemotherapy, clinical laboratory, rehabilitation, outpatient clinic and pathology.

l Building 4 (storage): This has four floors and contains the services of pharmacy, medical welfare and storage room.

l Building 5 (nuclear medicine): This has three floors and contains the services of radiopharmacy and nuclear medicine.

The future status of all six buildings, taking into account the new outpatient service building l Building 1 (heritage): This will operate only as an administrative building.

l Building 2 (research): The function of this building will change to outpatient clinics and research, sharing the first floor with the emergency service, which will remain in place due to its good location for patient access.

l Building 3 (hospitalisation): The hospitalisation service is consolidated expanding its capacity and rearranging the services formerly mixed therein. Pathology remains in place since it does not hinder the service, since each one of them contains properly differentiated access and circulation points.

l Building 4 (storage): This will act only as a storage building.

l Building 5 (nuclear medicine): This continues operating in the same manner and does not require rearrangement.

l Building 6 (new outpatient service building): The services of outpatient consultation, chemotherapy, rehabilitation, clinical laboratory, pharmacy and medical welfare are installed here.

Within the emergency department the condition of the monitoring rooms and the medical welfare rooms need to be improved. The condition of the rooms on the third and fourth floors, which are the oldest ones of the INC, also need to be improved. The Master Plan studies the rearrangement and correct division of the waiting rooms, taking into account access for family members and patients, depending on the distance of travel or the accessibility to the waiting rooms. It was found that the public and restricted circulation paths were crossing. Using the first floor as an example, is

the most complex floor for the crossing of circulation paths, due to the dispersion of
