The Turnov Hospital is an example of a hospital complex based on a liberal modernist concept, which was built in the early 1940s. The main building was designed as a single-block building with several wings joined together by a vertical transport shaft. After the construction of the Internal Medicine Wing came the reconstruction of the north wing housing the entrance hall and the outpatient unit, adding the extension on the west side and the additional recessed second storey. The important aim of this project was to retain the strictly functional style of the building and to reflect the original architectural concept of the complex in the sensitive entrance section of the hospital. The addition seamlessly extends the present entrance wing in the west direction while the additional recessed second storey generally softens the building as a whole. The architectural expression of the whole building, including the size and positioning of window openings and the modest architectural detailing, is uniform and it is not apparent that the building consists of consists of two sections built in two different periods. The only exception is the new light entrance porch providing safe access for the ambulances. On each of the four floor levels there are one to two wards of the polyclinic situated at the end of the building, without a traffic access to the other sections of the building. The tuberculosis and respiratory diseases unit has two separate entrances, one for adults and the other for children, directly connected with the outside area.
