Healthcare buildings of today must be flexible in order to remain relevant tomorrow. How can we design buildings that remain malleable in the face of uncertainty? This lecture will cover trends in health systems, patient-centered care and technology that drive the need for flexibility and dive into “The Big Five” design decisions that provide adaptability in an ever-changing healthcare landscape.
