Hospitainer Maternal Hospital

Reusable Maximum Flexibility

General description
The standard configuration of the Maternal Hospital consists of six 20ft shipping containers. The shipping containers are transformed into a medical facility with extremely robust characteristics. The standard configuration has an operation room (comprised of two 20ft containers), a pre- and post-operation room, a sterilization unit, a storage unit, and a staff unit. The units are connected through a bright central lobby.

The Maternal Hospital is designed for obstetric care through surgical interventions and can be deployed in post-disaster areas, and (post-)conflict areas or function as a semi-permanent hospital. The mission-ready character of the hospital allows medical providers to rapidly upscale health infrastructure by strategically placing the hospitals.

The Hospitainer Maternal Hospital can be composed following a LEGO structure; different medical units can be linked in any possible configuration attending customers’ needs. The hospital does not depend on general electricity grids and has its own water purification system. This makes the hospital extremely suitable for areas where essential infrastructure is destroyed. The Hospitainer can be re-located or used permanently due to low-cost components.

All necessary technical installations are delivered with the Hospitainer. The Hospitainer Maternal Hospital is autonomous in water and energy management. The lobby floor, walls, and roof are made of modular parts that are stored for transport in one of the containers. The operation room is equipped with robust and simple-to-maintain equipment.

It can be delivered with customer-specified equipment as well. Every container is equipped with insulated and easy-to-clean walls and a medical floor. The configuration can be changed upon customer request.
