AAH1702: Dublin Methodist Hospital: Culture Driven Design–Seven Years Later 

01-30-2017 10:47 AM

This webinar is sponsored by the Academy of Architecture for Health (AAH) on March 21, 2017 from 2–3pm ET. Earn 1.0 AIA LU/HSW.

Dublin Methodist Hospital was designed to “change the way health care is delivered in central Ohio.” It was also considered the most evidence-based designed hospital in the United States at the time it opened in 2008. Seven years later, many of the goals were achieved, and Dublin Methodist has become one of the most successful hospitals of its kind in central Ohio and beyond. However, there were several unexpected consequences that remind us “culture eats design for lunch.” Come see and hear some of the design innovations that worked, and some that didn’t.

Learning objectives

After participating in this webinar attendees will:

1. The hospital defined its desired culture at the beginning of the design process. Learn about the challenges of achieving this, and the impact on operations and design when the culture changes. 2. Designed with acuity adaptable patient rooms throughout, learn what the challenges were of this model of care and what it has evolved into. 3. All of the inpatient rooms were designed same handed, with patient bathrooms located on the headwall, in an effort to reduce falls. Hear about DMH’s falls statistics, and what they attribute them to. 4. Designed for the latest technology available at the time, learn what has worked, what has become obsolete and what is replacing it.
