Mar 15, 2017 10:50am ‐ Mar 15, 2017 11:50am


Credits: None available.

Standard: $30.00

Description

More than 29 percent of America's hospitals are either critical access or defined as rural health care facilities. In the pursuit to develop regulations, policies, and standard operating procedures we often forget about the unique challenges these small facilities face in complying with some of these requirements intended for their big brothers The design of these facilities often requires a creative, multipurpose approach.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the limitations of CAH's and similarities with small rural hospitals.
  • Review successful case studies where these facilities are able to meet community needs with a very small average daily census.
  • Identify some of the unique regulatory requirements for CAHs and some of the requirements that CAHs have difficulty meeting.
  • Develop strategies to identify how these hospitals can be used as a community hub for other activities.

Speaker(s):

  • Ryan Turner, AIA, EDAC, LEED AP, Architect/Principal, DSGW Architects

This session was close to home. Several of our clients in Colorado are Critical access hospitals. They provide a much needed service, yet tend to struggle to find available funding resources. I think the community aspect is a key element. Many Provide a gathering place for community, display the art within the community and employ a good percentage of the community. I thought the content was well presented.
