27 Jun 4 architectural perspectives that promote a health care organization’s growth and lower operational costs
In this 4-part series, CLH Architects will explore how your healthcare organization can support mission driven design and the impact it can have on your healthcare system specifically in the design and planning phases.
For the last decade much research has been compiled on how a healthcare facility can systematically lower operational costs while simultaneously improving patient and resident outcomes and lower readmission rates through design and layout of that facility. The amalgamation of architectural design and clinical planning should be carefully organized to result in dramatic advancements for your health care delivery model.
Part 1 of 4. An Ounce of Prevention
Have you heard the adage an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure? It holds true in your overall facility design. Currently most healthcare is delivered reactively where treatment for disease is the core tenant of design based on urgent or emergency care effectively putting the largest strain on a facility. In the 21st century master plan we should be creating places for the community to receive health education and disease prevention. In addition to having a positive impact on the communities in which you serve, these services and centers help solidify your organizations value to the community.
