The Rehabilitation Center provides diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation for both outpatients and inpatients with physical and mental disabilities.

The center includes a variety of facilities geared to provide comfort and help the healing process. These facilities include: lavish external courtyards, a residential unit for the families of the patients annexed to the medical facilities, an exhibition  hall and a large indoor sports complex for the well-being of the patients.

The elliptical shape of the building and the articulation of the volumes give dynamism to the building. The volumes are intercalated with open courtyards, which separate the main functions and services provided, and provide natural light and ventilation for the indoor spaces.
