With healthcare spending on an upward trajectory, there is also increased pressure on hospitals to make hard choices around sustainable healthcare with financial viability and patient safety at front of mind.
Watch two teams battle it out as they debate the viability and appropriateness of building and maintaining sustainable hospitals.
Health Facilities Design & Development Day Two: Thursday, 18 March 2021
The $37.6 Million Warren Health Service Redevelopment in Manjimup (WA) is a complex regional project delivered as part of the Southern Inland Health Initiative to deliver better health services across WA's southern inland region. It strives to promote wellness and comfort for the local community by balancing future healthcare needs with community ownership to design a culturally-acceptable and relevant facility. Lean how to:
Design a building that maximises natural light and open spaces to promote a wellness experience
Balance the need for good health planning principles with community engagement and ownership in the design and materials used, and why it’s important to be an advocate for a community’s needs
Secure government sign-off on unique and unconventional design solutions by doing your due diligence around the appropriateness of the build and whole of life cycle costs
