Drawing on some fifty years of experience at one of the country's leading healthcare architecture firms-Earl Swensson Associates (ESa)-authors Richard L. Miller, FAIA, Earl S. Swensson, FAIA, and J. Todd Robinson, AIA, explore the current and emerging trends in medical care, technology, and delivery as practiced in a rich cross section of examples of healthcare facilities from around the country. In this new edition they touch on such topics as Lean and LEED practices, evidence-based design, Planetree design, and other important issues facing contemporary and future designers. They expand coverage of the increasingly important topics covered in previous editions, such as women's and children's healthcare and care for the elderly. This new edition also explores the latest thinking on everything from vast new medical campuses to continuous-care retirement communities and from freestanding facilities to template designs for networks of hospitals. In short, the authors take a fresh look at the latest advances in the field and explain how these advances are affecting the design of hospitals and other healthcare facilities and the resulting impact for the future.

"[A]n intelligent book for hospital and healthcare facility designers. . . . I was blown away by the beauty of many of the facilities featured in the book and salute the architects who are creating beauty without sacrificing (and often further enhancing) efficiency." -- Global Lighting blog
