The design of a healthcare facility matters more than many people realize. It can boost trust and productivity for staff members and increases patient safety. The discussion on good hospital design are even more important during the COVID-19 pandemic, where COVID-19 positive patients need to be quarantined in separate spaces. For that reason, MCF organized a three-day masterclass together with the AAK: “Healthcare Facility Design. What can we learn from COVID-19? Resources are now made available for download.
MCF’s Hospital design workshops are supported by CDC and became throughout the years a reference point for many healthcare facilities needing technical assistant for their expansions. The Medical Community and the Architectural Community becomes more and more cognizant of space and how to leverage space as a resource for Quality enhancement, Service provision and infection prevention or promotion.
