An updated version of a work that has introduced three generations of students and professionals to the state-of-the-art in creating healing environments.

A celebrated standard for architects, planners, and hospital administrators, Hospital and Healthcare Facility Design has introduced three generations of students and professionals to the state-of-the-art practice of creating structures that are healing environments for those who are ill, while promoting wellness and comfort for all who use them. The third edition of this comprehensive work includes all new case studies and updated text providing innovative ideas and practical guidelines for planning and designing facilities in the rapidly changing landscape of the healthcare world.

Drawing on some fifty years of experience at one of the country’s leading healthcare architecture firms―Earl Swensson Associates (ESa)―authors Richard L. Miller, FAIA, Earl S. Swensson, FAIA, and J. Todd Robinson, AIA, explore the current and emerging trends in medical care, technology, and delivery as practiced in a rich cross section of examples of healthcare facilities from around the country. In this new edition they touch on such topics as Lean and LEED practices, evidence-based design, Planetree design, and other important issues facing contemporary and future designers. They expand coverage of the increasingly important topics covered in previous editions, such as women’s and children’s healthcare and care for the elderly. This new edition also explores the latest thinking on everything from vast new medical campuses to continuous-care retirement communities and from freestanding facilities to template designs for networks of hospitals. In short, the authors take a fresh look at the latest advances in the field and explain how these advances are affecting the design of hospitals and other healthcare facilities and the resulting impact for the future. 250 full-color and 25 black-and-white illustrations

About the Author:

Richard L. Miller, FAIA, was named by Healthcare Design magazine as one of the nation’s twenty-five most influential people in healthcare design and given the lifetime achievement award as a Health Care Hero by the Nashville Business Journal. He has served on the AIA Committee for Architecture and Healthcare and is a member of the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE), the Nashville Health Care Council, the Nashville Hospitality House Board, and the National Council of Architectural Registration Board. Widely recognized as an expert in healthcare design, he has spoken on topics ranging from utilization of the team approach in building a children’s hospital to the expectations of the hospital of the future at such venues as the Symposium on Healthcare Design and the IFMA World Workplace. Miller is president of Earl Swensson Associates (ESa).

Earl S. Swensson, FAIA, is founder of ESa, one of the country’s most successful and notable healthcare architectural firms, and is internationally celebrated for pioneering innovative design concepts in the healthcare and elderly care field, some of which have been patented. Known especially for advocating a design philosophy that incorporates human-centered design, state-of-the-art engineering, and sound economics to create an environment meeting the physical and emotional needs of its users. Swensson has written about his philosophy in A Passion for Design: Human-Centered Architecture and Synergenial Practice and taught and lectured widely on the future of architecture and healthcare facility design.

J. Todd RobinsonAIA, EDAC, is a senior designer and principal at ESa specializing in healthcare facilities. He has been in charge of the design and project management of hundreds of new, renovated, and expanded medical facilities throughout the United States, including rural and regional hospitals, medical centers, critical access hospitals, specialty centers, medical office buildings, and outpatient surgery and diagnostic centers. A participant in the Evidence Based Design Accreditation and Certification program at the Center for Health Design, Robinson is also a charter member of Planetree’s Design Advisory Council.

Review:

“[O]ne of my personal favorite books on the design of healthcare environments. . . . [A] constant source of information for me, a regular fixture on my coffee table that I relied upon heavily to educate me . . . . For those just starting out in the healthcare design industry, it provides a useful cross-section of everything on offer, exploring trends both established and emerging, with great visuals to back up the rich information. For seasoned professionals, it’s a timely reminder of the best that’s out there and a peek behind the curtain at what’s to come.”
- Healthcare Magazine

“[A]n intelligent book for hospital and healthcare facility designers. . . . I was blown away by the beauty of many of the facilities featured in the book and salute the architects who are creating beauty without sacrificing (and often further enhancing) efficiency.”
- Global Lighting blog
