Hospitainer Maternal Hospital

Reusable Maximum Flexibility

General description
The standard maternal hospital consists out of six 20ft shipping containers. The shipping containers are transformed into a medical facility with extreme robust characteristics. The standard configuration has an operation room (existing out of two 20ft containers), a pre- and post- operation room, sterilisation unit, storage unit and staff unit. The units are connected through a bright central lobby.

Application
The maternal Hospitainer is designed for obstetric care through surgical interventions and can be deployed in post-disaster areas, (post-)conflict areas or function as semi-permanent field hospital. The plug-and-play 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 customer 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 on a permanent basis due to low cost components.

Details
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.

Why a Hospitainer Maternal Hospital?
