Hospital and System Design
Partners HealthCare International provides support for the design, construction, and commissioning of new facilities for patient care and education. We work closely with architectural teams, engineering design teams, and equipment vendors to minimize risk and increase quality as clinical and academic program plans are translated into physical infrastructure.
In an ideal project, our work begins long before construction. We play an active role in the pre-planning stages, advising on strategy and helping to develop the clinical and educational program plans. Through the planning process, we help practitioners analyze how they deliver care or education in their existing environments and explore new models to increase their effectiveness. On projects focused on developing new hospitals or redesigning existing clinical services, we draw on clinicians and faculty working in top hospitals at the leading edge of advances in care. Similarly, when working on the development of new educational facilities, we apply the latest thinking on how to create student-centered learning environments.
We provide assistance to help partners ensure that new facilities take into account the following:
- Local cultural considerations
- Budget realities
- New and emerging technology
- Resource optimization and long-term sustainability
- Patient, student, family, and staff satisfaction
- Regulatory requirements and quality standards
- Opportunities to support innovative models of care and education via the design of physical space
