A state-of-the-art blueprint for architects, planners, and hospital administrators, Hospital and Healthcare Facility Design provides innovative ideas and concrete guidelines for planning and designing facilities for the rapidly changing healthcare system.
Drawing on more than thirty-five years of experience in the field, the authors explore current and emerging trends in medical treatment, technology, and delivery; discuss practical issues facing contemporary and future designers; and present a rich cross section of examples and case studies from around the country. Among the design challenges explored:
Emergency care design - from small emergency units to major trauma centers. Such issues as triage, separation of diagnosis from treatment, and flexible design for flexible response.Differentiation among critical care, chronic care, and community-based ambulatory care.Determining the cost-effectiveness of makeovers and retrofits versus new construction.Surgery facilities: learn design strategies for accommodating the three general classes of surgery that current design usually fails to distinguish adequately among - major invasive procedures, mildly invasive procedures, and outpatient procedures.Designing a comprehensive women's health facility that includes mammography screening, ultrasound and other gynecological diagnostics; childbirth classes and other educational programs; and daycare.And much more!
