Hospital Architecture: Guidelines for Design and Renovation
This book has attempted to devise a common language for hospital planning, programming, architecture, engineering and construction. A complete hospital project should be based upon a series of clear tasks and a straightforward schedule that is understood by the hospital, consultant, architect, engineer and contractor. An important feature of this book is the presentation of operational programming ratios. The use fo these ratios as a basis for sizing hospital department would give all of us a common method of re- viewing hospital utilization. Enormous differences in size, ranging from 600 to 1,200 gross square feet per bed, of hospitals in the same community should not exist. A baseline measurement is needed for all hospitals in order to assure quality space for the patient and to contain excessive facility cost based upon department wish- lists.
