Publisher Comments

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.
