Track:Programming, Planning, and Design
Hospitals have long been designed and managed to respond to emergencies. But the pace and intensity of community-scale disasters and the occurrence of emerging diseases is a challenge to established design approaches. This compels healthcare entities to ask how today’s designs anticipate the disaster-scale climate events and diseases of tomorrow. This session will examine available resilient design standards programs and case studies presented to substantiate the client experiences with them. In addition, a new tool specific to the design assignment will be presented. This will enable session attendees to select the route that best fits their clients’ resilient design needs.
