The public facility is unique in its design and will focus largely on specialized units that cater to a wide range of services from intensive care hospitalization to spa rehabilitation. It was designed not only with the needs of the medical profession but also largely inspired by the needs of the community. The hospital cathedral is one example which will be located on the hospital grounds within walking distance of the main complex. The design is based on the community`s daily public use of the on-site cathedral for religious service. Rio Negro facility incorporates many green initiatives within the design of the facility such as day lighting to all parts of the facility, green roof gardens, solar hot water heating, rain water retention, and a high performance building skin.
