This webinar will focus on a case study on the efficient design of one of the largest treatment centers for infectious diseases in the U.S. The University of Texas Medical Branch Galveston’s new six-bed bio-containment critical care unit will serve as a multifunctional patient care space that is equipped to treat patients with the most highly contagious diseases. Presenters will outline the unique parameters of caring for patients affected by special pathogens, such as Ebola, and the design considerations that were taken to create a healing environment that is safe, functional, and comfortable. If you are involved in healthcare or looking for insight designing sensitive healing environments, this is the session for you.

  • Identify guiding principles for the design of an infectious disease treatment center.
  • Explore the technological, physical, and operational challenges in the design process.
  • Describe the design for patient acuity integration within a multifunctional unit.
