A triangular shaped canopy at the main entrance is a very characteristic architectural feature designed to offer protection and comfort to patients, visitors and employees, while at the same time is giving the building its own unique identity, thus making it a point of reference. AMC extends to over 3 floors in an area of 10,000 square meters. It possesses 5 operating theaters, and the total number of hospital beds amounts to 50. A helicopter landing pad on the roof of the hospital helps to save time in emergency cases, considering often overly congested roads.
