Liquefaction-induced ground deformations affected the seismic performance of the new hospital facility
built in the City of Curanilahue, which is about 80 km southwest of Concepción. Clear evidence of soil liquefaction was observed throughout the hospital grounds adjacent to the structures and there is evidence of relative building movements, tilting, and internal deformation of the structures and foundations.
Structural and nonstructural damage was observed throughout the hospital; however, the extent of
structural damage was minimal due to the isolation gap provided between the wings. Nonstructural damage was largely confined to partition walls and ceiling systems.
