A major portion of the physical infrastructure of the American healthcare system is obsolete. Buildings designed 50 years ago are inadequate to meet the challenges of delivering care in the 21st century. To meet ever-increasing demands placed upon them, modern healthcare institutions must retool and rebuild. Unlike their monolithic predecessors, new healthcare institutions have diverse master plans, specialized centers of excellence devoted to inpatient and ambulatory services, research and education facilities, and satellite facilities serving the varied needs of large populations. Combining these factors with a growing elderly population, a shrinking workforce, and tighter revenue streams makes facility design a critical component in the survival and eventual success of the healthcare institution.
Healthcare Design intends specifically to fulfill the informational needs of architects, designers, administrators, facility managers, consultants, and key members of the construction community who are responsible for designing, building and renovating healthcare buildings. Articles, architectural and design portfolios, designing, building, and renovating healthcare buildings, opinion pieces, and other compelling editorial from credible and noteworthy authors are presented in an easy-to-read format. Healthcare Design is the central resource that reaches, informs, and influences these key decision makers.
