Mar 18, 2019 9:45am ‐ Mar 18, 2019 10:45am


Credits: None available.

Description

This session shares an ongoing national benchmarking research study on critical access hospitals (CAHs) based on the collaboration between an academic researcher, designers, policy makers, and the Facility Guidelines Institute. The speakers discuss the size of key areas, grossing factors, and strategies in CAH design. The implications will be elaborated with examples, including possible design strategies for CAHs and how beyond minimum requirement designs could be presented to a regulatory official for approval.

Learning Objectives:

1.) Explain the process and preliminary results of collaborative national benchmarking best practices projects.

2.) Evaluate the effects of CAH physical environments on patient outcomes and staff performance and retention.

3.) Discuss future trends and possible alternative typologies of CAHs to provide more efficient health care to rural populations.

4.) Use Beyond Fundamentals research to inform design and regulatory approaches. 

Speaker(s):

  • John Williams, Program Manager, Construction Review Services, Washington State Department of Health
  • Rebecca J. Lewis, AIA, FACHA, CID, Principal, DSGW Architects
