Community Memorial Hospital
A Health Care Facility is not just a place for patients and health care professionals, but a community of support staff and family members. Spaces are designed to allow family members a comfortable, inviting space, separate from the activity of the health care spaces. Support spaces are designed to assist family members in a positive environment, and organized to avoid the confusing, disorienting quality so common to older health care facilites.
Particular attention to human scale is vital in developing a project that will encourage a sense of comfort and protection. Additionally it is vital to design spaces that provide patients with their own sense of personal dignity.
