Designing Healthcare Facilities
Improving Patient Care, Controlling Costs, and Saving Space
What's in the presentation?
Space in healthcare centers is expensive to design, build, and occupy, and every cubic foot that’s used for storage is space that could be used for patient care. This presentation counters the misconception that storage space is “wasted” because it doesn’t visibly impact patient care and directly generate revenue. In fact, convenient and thoughtfully designed storage for supplies and equipment can actually improve productivity, patient care, and profitability. Participants will examine challenges within the healthcare environment that affect workflows and the health, safety, and welfare of occupants; learn how FF&E can contribute to occupant wellness and LEED certification; and view real-world case studies.
