Healthcare environments are complex as they house advanced technology and patient flows and at the same time, they should be sustainable, innovative, and humane with patients, staff and relatives in focus. A large number of competencies collaborate to provide the best possible care, where the architecture must fulfill all requirements within the project as well as surroundings. In addition, healthcare is constantly undergoing major changes, which requires flexibility for future challenges.
