Bathco is the company which equipped the bathrooms of the patient rooms and bathrooms for visitors in the new Marqués de Valdecilla University Hospital. A total of 518 toilets (model New Formentera) and 573 washbasins (California model) have been installed.


The 80cms California basin has been chosen to modernize the bathrooms of the new hospital. It is a simple rectangular piece, so it is perfect for spaces where functionality and accessibility is the main need. This washbasin is installed on steel supports, also by Bathco.


Regarding the sanitary ware, Bathco installed the wall-hung toilet New Formentera. As the general current trend, we opted for a wall-hung minimalist design piece that offers a number of advantages, specially in hygiene and functionality thanks to its hidden mounting system and soft close lid.
