Healthcare is Going Directly to the People
A summation of Healthcare Design Academy’s recent session in Healthcare Design Magazine states, “today’s marketplace calls for new ambulatory care strategies, a laser-sharp focus on patients’ wants and needs, and the ability to identify the best model, location, and service offering for the community you’re serving.” Available on Vizient GPO Contract #CE2900 (Vizient customers call for contract pricing.
With that in mind, many healthcare facilities are increasingly going directly to the people. Taking a lesson from retail business, healthcare facilities can get to market quicker, which enables them to turn a profit faster.
Adaptive Reuse Healthcare Design Strategy
But in order to provide their services while keeping costs to a minimum, healthcare centers are embracing adaptive reuse instead of new construction. Part of this new model of healthcare real-estate requires creativity to retrofit these existing spaces. Design solutions will need to be more modular, adjustable, and flexible as design teams adapt to be relevant in this new environment.
One solution for storage in the adaptive reuse facility is a FrameWRX™ bin system because of its high adaptability. The FrameWRX system’s custom capabilities allow it to retrofit into almost any space. And engineered to order (ETO) systems are available to meet unique storage challenges.
Retrofitting Patient Room Storage with FrameWRX Bin Systems
For example, a medical center moved into an existing building with the intention of retrofitting the space. Part of this project included renovating the closets within patient rooms to store medications, dressings, towels, and anything else the patient might need.
A specially designed FrameWRX system that incorporated uprights, custom shelves, and bins was placed in all of the closets. This solution was more modular, cost-effective, and flexible for the medical facility than traditional patient server or millwork cabinets you might typically find in patient rooms.
As healthcare facilities continue to adapt to the changing landscape, adaptable initiatives that reduce costs and enhance patient care are essential. Solutions like the FrameWRX bin system not only solve storage problems, but they’re the smart and logical choice for any facility at any time.
