Health Care Facility Design Guide from C.H.I.P.S.

Hospital Builders
by Tony Monk

This specialist publication traces these momentous changes that are transforming the Health Service, and provides valuable information for all those participating in the design, construction and subsequent management of this huge hospital rebuilding programme.

Hospital Builders offers a comprehensive appraisal of 32 case studies covering significant healthcare projects in Britain and around the world. Each is thoroughly analysed with a critical description, plans, illustrations and photographs to provide creative information that is of assistance to architects, contractors and managers and all those involved in the procurement and subsequent occupation of the facilities.

The ideas and examples are amplified through an exploration of the historical achievements, present circumstances and potential future direction of our modern progressive health service. Current practitioners contribute from first-hand experience and anticipate the implications of private finance initiatives and competitive healthcare partnerships. A central theme throughout the book is the abiding importance of high-quality hospital architecture and the therapeutic benefits to be gained by friendly, human healthcare environments.
