FGI 2022 Edition: Changes Coming to the Emergency Department
This session will discuss major additions and revisions to the emergency department (ED) sections and the freestanding emergency department chapter of the FGI 2022 Guidelines for Design and Construction documents. Bryan Langlands (NBBJ) and John Williams (Washington State Department of Health), both leaders in the 2022 Health Guidelines Revision Committee, will review the changes and discuss the thinking behind new clinical spaces introduced in the 2022 edition.

Major Revisions of the Draft FGI 2022 Guidelines
This panel discussion will cover expected changes in the 2022 Guidelines including behavioral and mental health spaces, clinical treatment spaces, and patient care areas such as burn units and hospice units. Updates revisit familiar topics (e.g., AII anterooms) and reflect new perspectives (e.g., inclusive environments), all while balancing the need to make design affordable, accessible and maintainable.
