A key wide-area disaster hospital in the East Japan region
In designing the hospital as a “base disaster medical center” in the event of a wide-area disaster, emphasis was placed on such important functions as seismic and disaster mitigation performance that are sufficient for the hospital to maintain its functions (even in case of a major disaster such as the Great Kanto Earthquake), ample stocks of fuel, water, food, etc., an energy supply system established to enable independent operation even when the lifeline is stopped, adequate triage space, and other functions.
