At the same time there are a growing number of hospital closures both as a result of consolidation as well as the economic struggles faced by small community and critical access hospitals. In order to survive ever increasing pressures to delivery high quality care with fewer resources, healthcare systems and their design professionals need to employ best practices on how the built environment can impact the quality and cost of care now and in the future.
