Healthcare Renovations Need Flexible Design Solutions

Renovating to create segregated areas and reconfigure existing spaces will be key

October 29, 2020

COVID-19 has highlighted need for efficiency in the renovation and construction of healthcare facilities, according to an article on the Colorado Real Estate Journal website.

Renovating to create segregated areas and reconfigure existing spaces will be key to maintaining revenue-generating operations during the pandemic and beyond. 

Revisiting modular construction solutions, building new HVAC systems and considering micro-hospital developments for specialized services will lead these developments, the article said.

Urgent care facilities and ambulatory surgical centers separate from large hospital facilities are expected tp grow in popularity, as they may reduce the risk of exposure to infection.

Plus, with an increase in the implementation of telehealth services, medical buildings are going to need to focus on how facilities can be produced to cater for this need. This will include rooms dedicated to making and taking phone calls (as well as video communications), lobbies for transformation, common spaces and even services where patients can come into a hospital to receive virtual assistance if required, according to a blog by Brenda Berg on the Healthcare Facilities Today website.
