The emerging vision for healthcare focuses on wellness instead of simply treating disease. This demands a more proactive, holistic and equitable approach. But optimizing wellness requires nontraditional, highly integrated facilities that bring together health science education, research and clinical care. As organizations seek to accelerate the process of linking lab discoveries to patient care, the lines between these building types are blurring.
HOK’s Healthcare and Science + Technology experts are increasingly working together to design these interdisciplinary, hybrid facilities. True innovation happens when educators, researchers and clinicians interact. The result is much-improved health outcomes for patients and communities.
