The General Hospital of the North Los Ceibos was inaugurated in March 2017 by the Ecuadorian Social Security Institute (IESS) as the largest in the country. The ‘mega hospital’ has 19 operating rooms and it worked immediately after its opening. 85% of care is internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, gynecology and dentistry.
SUMAC provided its energy efficiency service for a sector of the hospital. Through virtual simulations, we evaluate the energy consumption of the building’s systems, which include lighting, air conditioning, surround and controls. With the results, we validate and give recommendations for strategies to optimize the building’s energy consumption.
