The Hospital del Niño and the Hospital de la Maternidad are on Avenida Balboa, in Panama City. Just by the Santo Tomás Gardens stood the two buildings that the Hospital del Niño occupied. Once demolished, the buildings housing the car park and hospital’s general services werebuilt here.
The inside of the Edificio Abeja building (the former outpatient building at the Hospital del Niño) was renovated and transformed into an R&D centre.
Moreover, the Santo Tomás Gardens were redesigned and the third bypass which was lost during construction of the former building housing the Hospital del Niño was recovered. A pergola was installed to highlight the essence of these historical gardens and to bring everything together.
