In the time of intensive industry development, our natural environment will not manage alone with millions of tons of pollutants introduced into the atmosphere. The more harmful substances we are able to adapt, the smaller are the side effects of our activities. Synthetic gypsum is being produced as the by-product of processes aimed at protecting the environment against the harmful effects of sulphur dioxide from the energy industry. Gypsum products are being mainly used for making non-loadbearing walls inside buildings and for finishing the surfaces of internal partitions. Medical facilities, due to special conditions of use, must meet a wide range of requirements in this regard. Paper presents selected requirements for medical rooms in the field of acoustic insulation of walls from airborne sounds and protection of users against harmful ionizing radiation. The methods of execution of the partitions with the use of gypsum products that meet these requirements have been presented.
