Model Approach: Trendsetter

The cover feature of Healthcare Design showcases innovative design that will allow phased growth while maintaining  outstanding patient service and operational efficiency. 

A renowned leader in patient-centered healing, Stamford Health details the innovative zoning of their new ED in Healthline, where different colors signify patients' level of acuity, supporting operational flow and patient privacy. Built with staff in mind, this emergency department supports a high-response level that ensures the needs of patients and their families are met.

Just as hospital departments employ systems to stay up to date with technology and medical procedures, they also need to plan for resiliency in the face of natural disasters. Energy management is one of the most critical components of life safety that affects everyone. Our resiliency road map helps hospitals determine how to harden the existing infrastructure and prepare for future infrastructure improvements. More

Modern Pediatrics

Living in your hospital while rebuilding it is one challenge. Transforming it from adult and pediatric care to a dedicated children’s hospital is another. See how we helped CHOSA accomplish both in Healthcare Design.

Medical Construction & Design joined EYP and the Medical Center team for the topping off ceremony at HOPE Tower. The new facility will be home to medical education programs, as well as Hackensack Meridian Research Services and Faculty physician offices in medical practice areas including surgery, medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry and obstetrics and gynecology. The design will create a distinctive architectural anchor for the campus’s east side, while providing technologically-advanced spaces to foster the next generation of medical leaders.

Forward-thinking design combines best practices from both American and European healthcare. The consortium of WHR Architects, KHR Arkitekter, and Arup were awarded the Bispebjerg Somatic Hospital project after an international competition.  More

A New Kind of Hospital

User involvement is critical in medical planning but can also be challenging. We must make choices to find solutions. After discussion, there comes a point where you must decide what you believe is best for future patients and staff.

In its latest blog post, Region Hovedstaden focuses on the collaborative planning process for the new Bispebjerg Hospital. Engaging healthcare professionals in design charrettes maximizes functional efficiencies among clinical specialties to better meet patient needs.

Healthcare institutions are designing emergency departments that address the ever-evolving needs of patients, staff, and visitors. Medical Construction & Design discusses new trends in ED design, including open team workstations and layouts planned to minimize wait and patient turnaround times.

The Medical Center occupies the first floor of a new three-story hospital building that deploys the material palette of the existing campus to create a more contemporary aesthetic. More
