Investing in Hospitals of the Future (Observatory Studies Series) By B. Rechel, S. Wright, N. Edwards, B. Dowdeswell, M. McKee
Publisher: World Health Organization | ISBN: 9289043040 | edition 2009 | PDF | 321 pages | 2,95 mb
Despite considerable investments in health facilities worldwide, little systematic evidence is available on how to plan, design and build new facilities that maximize health gain and ensure that services are responsive to the legitimate expectations of users. This book brings together current knowledge about key dimensions of capital investment in the health sector. A number of issues are examined, including new models of long-term care, capacity planning, the impact of capital investment on the health care workforce, markets and competition, systems used for procurement and financing, the whole lifecycle of health facilities, facility management, the wider impact of capital investment on the local community and economy, how care models can be translated into capital asset solutions, and issues of therapeutic and sustainable design. This book is of value to those interested in the planning, financing, construction, and management of new health facilities. It identifies critical lessons that increase the chances that capital projects will be successful.
New Health Facilities - Architectural design
Hospitals and health centers are a unique category of architecture with clearly defined characteristics. Health architecture must offer imaginative, constructive responses and flexible solutions to the problem raised by this special type of facility: planning, budgets and space as well as the idiosyncrasies arising from each particular field of health. New Health Facilities presents the best examples of health architecture constructed in recent years and each of the architects demonstrates a solid understanding of the need to create new and better health facilities.

"The Architecture of Madness: Insane Asylums in the United States"
Univ Of Minnesota Press | Pages: 256 | 2007-04-19 | ISBN: 0816649391 |
Elaborately conceived, grandly constructed insane asylums—ranging in appearance from classical temples to Gothic castles—were once a common sight looming on the outskirts of American towns and cities. Many of these buildings were razed long ago, and those that remain stand as grim reminders of an often cruel system. For much of the nineteenth century, however, these asylums epitomized the widely held belief among doctors and social reformers that insanity was a curable disease and that environment—architecture in particular—was the most effective means of treatment.
