Micro-Hospitals: Healthcare for the Community

Description: 

As healthcare systems are looking for innovative ways to bring hospital services to rural communities and neighborhoods, healthcare architecture is challenged to include all the requirements of a licensed 24/7 hospital within a footprint that is a fraction of a traditional hospital while simultaneously designing a community-friendly building that still reflects the healthcare system’s branding.  

This course will present case studies of four micro-hospitals – each having its own unique solution while staying true to the micro-hospital model.

Hosted by the Academy of Architecture for Health AIA Knowledge Community.
