Talking points:

Reflect changing nature of healthcare

  • Consider physician patient dynamics; patient centric environment
  • Non-institutional environment; more “residential” in character
  • Allow for increasing treatment of chronic disease in outpatient environment
  • Acoustics critical
  • Significant increase in outpatient volume 

Impact of Technology

  • Need for flexibility in diagnostic and treatment areas as technology changes
  • Adequate provisions for increased use of technology by staff, physicians, patients and visitors

Optimize Use of Capital Investment

  • Design to reduce labor costs and increase staff efficiency
  • All for repurposing and flexibility as services change
  • Ensure commercial sustainability for the long term with flexibility to integrate new space as needed. (look at design of Tampa Airport.. only as an example of long term flexibility)
