To a certain extent, the answer is implicit in the question itself. Following a study process, we realized that to design hospitals that meet the needs of each individual client it is not necessary to create however many models as situations that arise, but rather to come up with a single model based on a combination of parametric rules which could be adapted to every case. The parametric hospital is not a construction system based on modular construction nor is it a system of prefabricated modules or building components, but rather an intellectual process based on an in-depth analysis of the metrics and parameters that cilities such as hospitals and which allow us to successfully overlap and opti-
considerably reducing the timescale putting the hospital into operation with all its facilities customized for the client in question.
