Essential information for the design of healthcare facilities

Building Type Basics for Healthcare Facilities, Second Edition is your one-stop reference for the essential information you need to confidently begin the design process and successfully complete a healthcare project, large or small, on time and within budget. Leading architects from across the United States share their firsthand knowledge in order to guide you through all aspects of healthcare facility design, with an emphasis on what you need to do to get started quickly.

This edition is revised with multiple new healthcare project examples completed this century, more information on engineering requirements, and background on evolving sustainability and technology issues. It begins with an assessment of the healthcare industry's current and future needs, focusing on how those needs affect architecture. Next you get critical information and guidelines that enable you to create successful designs for inpatient, outpatient, and long-term care facilities. Coverage includes clinics, emergency departments, ambulatory care units, specialty centers, as well as facilities designed for adaptive reuse or the assimilation of future technologies.
