LED technology is the most effective and ‘healthy’ way to illuminate any environment. Its qualities surpass the most demanding conditions of health and safety and among its major advantages stands out length, quality and lower costs compared to any other type of lighting.
The University Hospital Puerta del Sur in Móstoles has just checked it after starting a project that includes a complete installation of this technology in its new facilities, which opened two months ago. It also becomes the first health centre of Madrid illuminated 100% with this unique technology.
The brand new hospital covers the health needs of a population of over one million inhabitants and 250,000 private healthcare users who are estimated in the area. ‘The main advantages of the project have to do with the qualities of LED technology -longer lifespan and lower power consumption compared to previous fluorescent systems. But it also aims to the possibility of reducing lighting costs’ comments Luis Armenta – HM Hospitals Engineering Manager.
This four-story modern building of 24,000 square meters and a capacity of 130 beds, is the sixth hospital of the HM group in Madrid and will be the most modern facility that this hospital chain allocates to the specialization in neuroscience.
A year before its inauguration, their responsibles dealt with an ambitious lighting project, which has just ended. This project has lead this hospital to be the first in Madrid to equip its facilities with LED technology, the most effective and advanced lighting currently.
