Through freestanding heart hospitals and continued investment in new equipment, cardiology remains a primary focus for healthcare organizations around the globe.
We recognize that cardiology facilities – as with all high-acuity areas of medicine – have greatly benefited from embracing technology. Technology advancements like wireless monitoring, digital imaging and hybrid operating rooms simplify the care process but also add complexity to the space through constant change. Furthermore, limited mobility in heart patients necessitate workflow to be designed around the patient. Concepts like centralization, tactical space adjacencies and acuity-adaptable rooms minimize patient movement and support the varying patient needs before, during and after treatment.
