Developing and executing a health care facility’s new or improved design establishes the basis for safe and effective care within that structure’s walls. Like any construction or renovation project, it requires resources, education, communication, and collaboration throughout the process, which encompassing planning, design, construction, and commissioning. When patient and worker safety are at risk, the stakes for a successful project are even higher.
