The Rey Juan Carlos Hospital by Rafael de La-Hoz uses its architectural design to heal its patients. This hospital is located in Mostoles, Madrid, and its objective is to give guest complete attention.

This contemporary hospital has three core elements which are silence, light and efficiency. To achieve silence, the hospital has removed loud corridors and relies on natural light and quiet areas to help heal its patients. The base of the hospital is a large rectangular structure with two circular towers resting upon it. Rey Juan Carlos is environmentally friendly with the use of natural light, ventilation, use of green materials and renewable energy technology. The hospital works to keep its costs to a minimum while maintaining a small ecological footprint.
