Hospital Design & Planning

STERIS has a professionally staffed Project Design & Planning Group to assist owners, architects, and healthcare facility planners in the design of specific hospital departments, proper placement of equipment, and even hospital expansion. This service has been rendered on thousands of projects around the world and has affected more than half of the hospitals in the United States.

Our professionals possess an average of 25 years experience in hospital and health care facility planning and design. Services range from simple equipment placement and single room layouts to entire department design, including operating room design. Drawings can be provided from free-hand sketches to elaborate computer-generated detail plans.

While assisting in health care facility and hospital design and/or hospital expansion, the Project Design & Planning Group can assist in identifying proper materials handling techniques; determining optimum work flows; recommending space allocations and relationships; integrating patient, staff, and material flows; and determining the equipment mixes best suited to particular functions.
