Professional, architects, and interior designers serving the healthcare industry will find exciting new approaches to their work in Healthcare Spaces No. 6. The wide range of recently completed projects presented in this edition graphically display how knowledge, creativity and determination can transform such varied spaces as patient rooms, surgical suites, emergency rooms, imaging centers, staff lounges, catheterization laboratories, LDRP suites and wellness centers into functional and aesthetic venues for both healthcare provider and patient. With over 90 outstanding examples of modern healing environments and 250+ color images from leading design firms, this book will prove to be an excellent method of assessing how public and private institutions are coping with the opportunities and challenges of managed care, advances in medical science and technology, ageing populations, and the drive towards patient-focused care. Healthcare decision makers and their architects and interior designers will be inspired by the innovative new healing environments featured that embody design concepts they can study and adapt for their own use.
