In collaboration with Government Architect NSW, HI has launched the Design Guide for Health: Spaces, Places and Precincts.
The guide is a comprehensive document to support the planning, design, and delivery of high-quality health facilities, demonstrating how great clinical design and spatial design can be delivered together.
HI’s Chief Executive Rebecca Wark said investment in good design will deliver value for money and ensure long-term performance, effectiveness, sustainability, and adaptability of our health system.
“As an organisation, we understand the significant opportunity and responsibility that comes with delivering a substantial capital works program and are committed to innovating and building more sustainable, resilient healthcare infrastructure,” Ms Wark said.
“People are at the centre of good design. Creating places that heal, enhance clinical service and wellbeing of patients, are supportive environments for workers and visitors and contribute to local public spaces and connections with the community is what matters.”.
The Design Guide for Health outlines how embedding a range of priorities from the start of a project amplifies the potential to design health facilities that provide quality clinical care and meet the many diverse roles of health facilities, now and in the future.
