Health facilities review
The projects featured in this new collaboration are the outstanding entries from the 2003 American Institute of Architects Health Facilities Review. The more than 40 projects include new hospitals, hospital and health facility additions and expansion projects , outpatient and ambulatory care facilities, and specific therapeutic settings or features. These sophisticated projects combine architectural excellence with the very latest in medical technology, while increasingly encompassing holistic solutions and emphasising the importance of mind-body health for patients, their families and staff. 'Health Facilities Review' demonstrates that today's healthcare facilities are a far cry from the institutional edifices of the past, bringing together the best contemporary designs, with detailed project information, full-colour images and plans.
