Purpose The challenges arising from the reform of the social and healthcare sector call for efficient, effective and novel processes in both public and private health and medical care. Facilities need to be designed to suit the new processes and to offer usable workspaces at different levels of healthcare services. Along with traditional construction, modular facility innovations could be one solution to these pressures. The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach This ca...

ABSTRACTFacility design related to rapidly changing healthcare (HC) processes is in dire need of new innovations. Due to an ongoing nationwide HC reform in Finland, five University Hospitals among other central hospitals are forced to find ways to carry out competitive HC design practices in order to maintain efficient work environments and processes. This article illustrates a brief overview of Kuopio University Hospital's (KUH's) design development concept. The researchers reviewed and evaluat...

ABSTRACTHealthcare (HC) providers are expected to enhance their work efficiency, while resources for HC remain scarce. In order to accomplish this, efficient work environments must be developed. Although not yet a common practice in today’s hospitals, participatory design is a useful tool for improving HC facility design (FD). Thematic interviews were used as a study method. Employees from two Finnish central hospitals (n = 14) were interviewed. The interviews were carried out among, for example...

Purpose As hospital operations are undergoing major changes, comprehensive methods are needed for evaluating the indoor environment quality (IEQ) and usability of workspaces in hospital buildings. The purpose of this paper is to present a framework of the characteristics that have an impact on the usability of work environments for hospital renovations, and to use this framework to illustrate the usability evaluation process in the real environment. Design/methodology/approach The usability of w...
