Patients Admission

The Outpatients are distributed in 15 (fifteen) examining rooms on the ground floor, with their respective support areas.  The facilities are very comfortable, each with their own desk and cozy waiting room.

The ground floor also serves the Radiotherapy services in an independent but adjacent sector to the central outpatients area.

The radiotherapy department is built in an 800 sq. m. area and is fitted with the latest equipment to serve to 2 (two) radiotherapy bunkers, 1 (one) simulation room and 1 (one) surgical room for Intraoperative Radiotherapy (it’s only one of its kind in Argentina).

Strategically and operationally distributed on the ground floor as well are all the Additional Services, such as Labs, Hemotherapy and Image based diagnostics, connected by an internal circulation corridor, they share a very large and well-lit central public hall due to its triple height and its glass ceiling. The Hall is built in an area of approximately 1000 m2 from where you can also access the coffee shop.
Finally, the ground floor also houses the Emergency Room Sector, although it may be accessed conveniently from the central hall, also has an independent entrance on Zabala Street, where there’s ambulance access. The Emergency Room Sector was recently remodeled to create a “fast” assistance sector with 2 (two) consulting rooms and an adjacent area for minimal emergencies with 2 (two) beds and a cast room.

Additionally, there are 4 (four) beds in a room for patients that require longer observation periods, equipped with high complexity equipment, a nurse’s office and a room for on-call physicians. This sector can be accessed from the internal circulation corridor in order to have access to Additional Services (Laboratory, Imaging, etc.)

The first floor contains the Day Hospital, the Central Pharmacy, the Oncology Research Center, the Department of Teaching and Research and the Archive.

The recently remodeled Day Hospital, with 18 (eighteen) chairs to administer oncological medication in its endovenous, intra-muscular or sub-cutaneous variants without limits in application times.

The whole sector is controlled by a central office from where nurses monitor all posts. Additionally, it has an office for secretaries with a waiting room and a consulting room for medical evaluation before each treatment.

The Pharmacy has modern cabins with Laminar Flow and Biosafety. That guarantees the sterility of preparations, vital due to the immunosupressed nature of our patients, but also protects  workers from potential poisoning caused by the manipulation of oncologic drugs (cytostatic).

The second floor houses the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, the Intensive Care Unit, the Operating Theatres, the Anesthetic and Post Surgical Recovery Room, the Cardiology Service with 3 (three) offices, 5 (five) Oncology Offices, The Sterilization Center, the Library, the Nursing Department, the Medical Residents Sector and the Auditorium.

The Surgical Center was built on a large area measuring around 700 m², with 5 (five) operating theatres for high complexity surgery, equipped with modern anesthetics equipment, multifunctional modular monitors for hemodynamic monitoring, automatic alarms and built-in memories, surgical tables with Electronic control, state-of-the-art electro-vibrators, extracorporeal circulation equipment and heat exchangers for patient thermal balance, enabling several simultaneous surgical teams to work together.

The surgical center has an Anesthetic and Post Surgical Recovery Room attached with 8fully equipped observation beds with access to medical gases, multiple-parameter monitors and latest generation mobile stretchers, which allow to increase the number of ambulatory procedures according to best practices, individual dressing rooms and a medical report room.

The Bone Marrow Transplant Unit has been built independently of the rest of the Institute’s in-patient area. This was decided  considering the special type of patients requiring this benefit. It has 6 (six) completely isolated rooms, with air injection through special ABS HEPA filters and with Injected Laminar Flow, which significantly reduces the risk of hospitalization related infections in immunosuppressed patients.

The sector has nursing, catering and secretarial offices, physicians meeting room, an on-call physician office, medical office for pre and post transplant evaluation and a waiting room.

The rooms have a fixed glass window that remain sealed to keep indoor air filtered and with minimal contamination and they communicate with a visitor’s room from where they can see the patient and communicate with them through internal telephones that are next to each window. This is in case the patient can not receive visits due to his immunological condition.

The Post-Surgical Intensive Care Unit was designed according to the recommendations of the American Society of Critical Medicine and has a Central Modular Monitoring System with memory that allows staff to control: pulse oximetry, pulmonary or jugular mixed venous saturation, PCO2 at the end of exhalations, noninvasive and invasive blood pressure and body temperature. Also available is a metabolometer for measuring by indirect calorimetry of oxygen consumption, CO2 production and energy expenditure.
The type of respirators used allows to implement non-invasive ventilation techniques, especially useful in immunosuppressed patients. It has 6 (six) beds in boxes and 1 (one) isolated bed.

The Auditorium has an approximate area of ​​200 m² and capacity for 100 (one hundred) sitting people. It is equipped with the latest technology to be able to realize athenaeums, courses, conferences, etc.

The third, fourth and fifth floors are intended for general in-patient admissions.

In the third floor, the Institute has 39 (thirty-nine) individual rooms; In the fourth, 15 (fifteen) and in the fifth, 24 (twenty four), which makes for a total of 78 (seventy eight) rooms, all with private bathrooms, central air conditioning with individual climate control and main gases (Oxygen, compressed air and vacuum.).

On the fourth floor, there is an area separate from the general in-patient care area, with an Ambulatory Procedures Room for Protocols, equipped with 3 (three) armchairs for administering infusion medication and an adjacent Sector with 2 (two) beds for Transfusion and dialysis procedures.

Apart from in-patient care is also the Intensive Care Unit with 6 (six) rooms, with similar characteristics to the Unit on the second floor.
