The first project for the construction of this building, located on Calle Atocha, was commissioned to Sabatini, but it was never carried out. It was finally passed over to Tiburcio Pérez Cuervo, who, with certain exceptions, can be considered the author of the building with the large balcony overlooking the inner courtyard, in line with the main entrance. The floor is inspired by the Paris School of Surgery, built by J. Gondoin between 1769 and 1775. The façade that faces onto Calle Atocha is by Juan Pedro Ayegui.
