The design of this hospital takes into account the possibility of the River Eem flooding: all vital functions are situated at 2.6 metres above ground level. If the hospital floods, it can be evacuated safely. The lower spaces were designed with the flood risk in mind, and after a flood they are ready for use after cleaning. Construction began in 2010, and the hospital will become operational in 2013. [Meander Medisch Centrum, 2011]
