    As healthcare systems are looking for innovative ways to bring hospital services to rural communities and neighborhoods, healthcare architecture is challenged to include all the requirements of a licensed 24/7 hospital within a footprint that is a fraction of a traditional hospital while simultaneously designing a community-friendly building that still reflects the healthcare system's branding.  

    This course will present case studies of four micro-hospitals – each having its own unique solution while staying true to the micro-hospital model.

    Hosted by the Academy of Architecture for Health AIA Knowledge Community. 

    Learning objectives

    • Explore micro-hospital definition regarding services, HC system integration and location in provision of health care services not otherwise available.
    • Understand Micro hospital's staffing model as integral for operational success in achieving efficiencies while providing best possible patient safety and comfort.
    • Avoid pitfalls of large hospital mindset leading to cost prohibitive delivery of care.
    • Review the different model realizations of micro-hospitals and the potential of micro-hospital as anchor to medical office building to provide enhanced services to the covered population.
