Planning and Designing Healthcare Facilities

Without flexibility, hospitals face quicker obsolescence if designs are not forward-thinking. Planning and Designing Healthcare Facilities: A Lean, Innovative, and Evidence-Based Approach explores recent developments in hospital design.

The planning and design of healthcare facilities has evolved over the previous decades from "function follows design" to "design follows function." Facilities stressed the functions of healthcare providers but patient experience was not fully considered. The design process has now crucially evolved, and currently, the impression a hospital conveys to its patients and community is the primary concern. The facilities must be welcoming, comfortable, and exude a commitment to patient well-being. Rapid changes and burgeoning technologies are now major considerations in facility design. Without flexibility, hospitals face quicker obsolescence if designs are not forward-thinking. Planning and Designing Healthcare Facilities: A Lean, Innovative, and Evidence-Based Approach explores recent developments in hospital design. Medical facilities have been adapted to the requirements of clinical functions. Recently, the needs of patients and clinical pathways have been recognized. With the patient at the center of the process, the flow of tasks becomes the guiding principle as hospital design must employ evidence-based thinking, and process management methods such as Lean become central. The authors explain new concepts to reduce healthcare delivery cost, but keep quality the primary consideration. Concepts such as sustainability (i.e., Green Hospitals) and the use of new tools and technologies, such as information and communication technology (ICT), Lean, and evidence-based planning and innovations are fully explained.

It has lots of ideas for the architect, who conceives of a viable plan for the hospital. It addresses the various issues which must be kept in mind by consultants, planners and administrators who subsequently run the hospital. Professionals who are responsible for planning and designing hospitals and those who subsequently manage, maintain and operate them efficiently find the task of managing change quite challenging.

This book has attempted to devise a common language for hospital planning, programming, architecture, engineering and construction. A complete hospital project should be based upon a series of clear tasks and a straightforward schedule that is understood by the hospital, consultant, architect, engineer and contractor. An important feature of this book is the presentation of operational programming ratios. The use fo these ratios as a basis for sizing hospital department would give all of us a common method of re- viewing hospital utilization. Enormous differences in size, ranging from 600 to 1,200 gross square feet per bed, of hospitals in the same community should not exist. A baseline measurement is needed for all hospitals in order to assure quality space for the patient and to contain excessive facility cost based upon department wish- lists.
