Healthcare facilities are sensitive ecosystems. When any part of the system is altered, the entire system must be considered to ensure that it functions without interruption.

Whether renovating or building, it’s essential to understand how different departments work together, as well as how equipment, regulations, and technology will affect design considerations. But even solving today’s issues without complications isn’t enough. Every design change needs to take tomorrow into account.

This is where future-proofing comes in. Future-proofing is “the process of anticipating the future and developing methods of minimizing the negative effects.” It’s vital that healthcare systems work with an engineering team that can provide the short-term solutions that position the facility for long-term growth.

Continuous technological advancement, increasing power requirements, evolving space needs and ever-changing regulatory requirements are just a few of the trends affecting healthcare design. Having infrastructure in place that will allow for flexibility and adaptability will prevent significant and expensive changes in the long run.
