Synopsis

Significant innovations in healthcare design knowledge have occured in the decade since the first edition of Design Details for Health was published. Evidence is now measurable, revealing just how the physical environment of a building can improve healthcare outcomes and recovery. Updated with the latest research and contemporary case studies, this new edition is a comprehensive primer on healthcare design for multiple typologies from acute care hospitals to senior living to medical offices and wellness centers. Updated with interviews with leading practitioner and providers, this is a must have for healthcare architects, interior designers as well as healthcare providers.

"Cynthia Leibrock and Debra Harris have developed a vitally important reference. They draw upon and compile a rich source of evidence that supports the application of specific research-based details for particular health-related settings." --from the foreword by Dr. Wayne Ruga, AIA, FIIDA, Hon.
