Synopsis: The core of this volume is a detailed analysis of 27 medical and dental specialties and their respective space planning requirements. There is information on the psychological factors to be considered in health care design, plus the general parameters of medical space planning.

From the Inside Flap: Medical and Dental Space Planning for the 1990s Jain Malkin Twenty years ago, the words "medical" and "design" were rarely used in the same sentence. Today, however, the design of health care facilities represents one of the largest market segments, offering architects and designers a broad spectrum of projects requiring highly developed skills and specialized experience. The design of medical and dental facilities for the 1990s will be shaped by a number of key issues such as infection control, reimbursement policies, new technologies, and the graying of America. There will be an increased need for highly specialized structures, with an emphasis on ambulatory care. Medical and dental space planners will need to become familiar with an increasing number of clinical procedures and techniques in order to properly design new outpatient facilities. More than 27 primary and specialty health care practices such as family practice, pediatrics, radiology, ophthalmology, plastic surgery, neurology, and oral surgery are thoroughly analyzed in Medical and Dental Space Planning for the 1990s. Innovative designs for sports medicine facilities, ambulatory surgical centers, magnetic resonance imaging facilities, endoscopy suites, office-based surgery suites, and women s centers are also provided. For each specialty, the reader will quickly learn the key components of a functional and efficient layout, including:

  • basic clinic functions (administration, patient care, and support services)
  • practical design features that assure efficient patient handling and optimum traffic flow
  • a review of relevant codes
  • formulas for estimating space for each medical and dental specialty
  • construction methods
  • specialized equipment
The book also discusses the psychology of color and its application to the health care environment; reviews interior finishes, furniture, and lighting specifications;offers imaginative design ideas for amusing and distracting children in pediatric offices; explains the use of lasers in surgery; provides guidelines for designing a functional building shell; and examines the critical factors in the office environment by which patients assess the physician or dentist and that affect the level of anxiety the patient experiences. The book is illustrated with 93 floor plans of medical and dental offices and clinics, schematic diagrams of spatial relationships, 196 photos of relevant medical and dental equipment, and more than 200 photos of imaginative design ideas for room interiors. Unique, easy-reference program tables accompany each medical and dental specialty to help the designer compute the number and size of required rooms for each practice. The author has successfully put this vital information to use in designing hundreds of medical and dental facilities nationwide. No other book offers architects, interior designers, and health care professionals such authoritative coverage. With Medical and Dental Space Planning for the 1990s, the reader will be ready to participate in the burgeoning growth of the health care industry.
