This session presents a case study that will focus on the efficient design of one of the largest treatment centers for infectious diseases in the United States. The University of Texas Medical Branch Galveston’s new six bed Bio-Containment Critical Care Unit serves as a multi-functional patient care space that is equipped to treat patients with the most highly contagious diseases. This session will outline the unique parameters of caring for patients affected by special pathogens, such as Ebola, and the design considerations that were taken to create a healing environment that is safe, functional and comfortable. If you are involved in health care or looking for insight designing sensitive healing environments, this is the session for you.
- Assess considerations to identify a location for a biocontainment critical care unit
- Describe patient acuity integration within a multi-functional unit
- Explore the technological, physical and operational challenges in the design process
- Identify lessons learned during construction and activation of the unit
