Seismic risk assessment of existing buildings is a very complex topic for researchers and engineers. Seismic evaluation of hospitals is quite more difficult, because of structurals, functionals, and equipments complexity. The paper, after a overview on current practice in this field, will finally present a case study, the hospital of Arzignano (Vicenza, Italy). Not only the structural safety, but also the assessment of non structural building elements are discussed.
