Large format. Publisher's description: Hospitals as a building type have undergone a substantial evolution in the past years. Changes in healthcare, the impact of evidence-based design and aspects of healthcare economics pose new and different challenges for the designer. Today's healthcare facilities herald the paradigm change from the large functional building complex to a design-conscious health institution with luxury hotel features. This publication explains the principles and requirements for the planning of hospitals and other health facilities. An international case study section documents 40 best-practice projects in six categories: general hospitals, children's hospitals, spe- cialized clinics, outpatient clinics and health centers as well as rehabilitation clinics.
