COMMUNITY HEALTHCARE DESIGN COMPETITION
DESIGN AT A GLANCE......
Many of the emerging trends in healthcare design come partly in response to exciting and healthy developments in the industry. Healthcare has long had an institutional feeling, but designers are pushing in the other direction. The beauty and comfort are viewed as just as important to a patient’s well-being as a sterile environment. Community is another aspect that is becoming important in healthcare settings, especially in senior living centers. Designers are putting senior health centers in the middle of communities and making the center its own public area with shared spaces for learning, socializing, and working. Many designers are also turning their attention to medical staff. Providing some creature comforts for the staff strongly influences both job satisfaction and patient care.
Community healthcare clinics are solution to easy accessible healthcare services for both urban and rural population. They can serve the issues of urgent health services in case of emergency situations. With outbreaks of epidemics, the urge of medical facilities increases, these clinics will serve as a mini hospital at such condition also which eliminates the number of infected victims suffering due to unavailability of healthcare facility.Both passive and active strategies can be integrated to engage on a mental and physical level with the underlying message of health promotion and sustainable design
