It looks like any other upscale parking garage, if a bit cleaner than most. But this parking garage can become an underground hospital that can hold more than 1,700 patients, and is safe from conventional, biological or chemical attack.It goes deep under the Mediterranean Sea and is connected to the Rambam Medical Center by elevators. Inside the walls of the parking spaces are all of the electrical needs for hospital beds, along with 22 surgical suites and 94 dialysis beds. Along the ceiling are medical pipelines that can carry air, oxygen, and water.
