From emergency departments to micro-hospitals, to the amenities in and locations of hospitals, the year ahead will see continued changes in how healthcare providers are designing and equipping their facilities to meet both patient and market needs, according to an article on the NB Herald website.

• Emergency department reconfigurations for behavioral health needs. Hospitals are working to separate patients who pose a risk to themselves and others from the general population, while ensuring all patients are treated with dignity.
• Microhospitals are becoming more popular — 19 states have built them so far. The microhospital model offers greater accessibility and convenience and a cost-effective growth strategy.
