The new 141-bed, state-of-the-art Hospital is designed to be structurally safe, seismic-resistant and highly energy-efficient. The Hospital’s innovative “rammed earth” construction was designed to be both durable and to blend in with the environment. Rammed earth also provides for better insulation. Over half of the new Hospital’s power is supplied by solar panels located on a hilltop behind the Hospital, on a piece of land donated by the Bamyan government.
