MEDICAL OFFICE BUILDINGS

Although medical office buildings vary according to type and specialty, they share important principles and their design requires awareness of issues uniquely associated with the healthcare industry. Parking and drop-off locations must allow ease of access, minimizing the distance for patient travel—especially for those with impairments. Upper floors require appropriate vertical transportation, sized to handle patient traffic and positioned to minimize corridor length. Bay depths should be sufficient to promote efficient internal circulation by patients and staff. Common areas should be designed for positive impact but minimized in size. Buildings must incorporate proper HVAC controls, clean power and communication technologies. Overall, medical office buildings should be planned to promote efficient patient management, allow physicians to practice according to their specific philosophies of treatment, and provide secure, uplifting environments that encourage patients to focus on good health.
