|Title||BEAUTY AND INNOVATION IN HEALTHCARE DESIGN: THE FORT WORTH CLINIC|
|Abstract|| The Fort Worth Clinic will provide urgent health services to those families that do not want to pay emergency room fees, or may not have a primary care physician. In recent years, healthcare designers and architects have proved that healthcare spaces can, not only be highly functional, but innovative and beautiful. The scope of the project includes three of the five phases of design: programming, schematic design, and design development. Through these phases, the design concept is established, the floor plan is solidified and the overall interior design of the space is accomplished. The clinic will house exam rooms, procedure and x-ray rooms, a nurse station, a staff lounge, and offices. The space will be planned in a way that is most efficient for the nurses that work there, and will be designed with products that are approved for healthcare spaces, which are both cleanable and wearable. The space will be inviting to the patients as well as functional to those that work there. The atmosphere will be comfortable and inviting with contrasting warm hues. The Fort Worth Clinic will provide immediate health services, but makes the patient feel as if they have entered a hospitality environment. |
