The Future of Adaptive Space Design in Healthcare During COVID-19

The first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic is still going strong and forcing already-inundated healthcare providers to respond, evolve and adapt quickly to ensure continuity and excellence in patient care. But what lasting lessons has the pandemic taught us? What are innovative providers doing to prepare both for their immediate needs and for the impossible-to-predict future? How has the pandemic affected current design and planning projects?

These questions and more are explored in this enlightening #AttainiaNation master class presentation hosted by Irene Bickell of OneEQ LLC, and Jennifer Romer of Stanford Health Care. This expert space planning team share their experiences in innovative adaptive design, and offer unique provider insight in to how they are addressing Stanford’s current medical space needs — and how they are future-proofing new spaces — using innovative, adaptable design methodologies.

Key topics that are covered in this presentation:

  • How immediate needs were addressed in the early days of the pandemic at Stanford Hospital
  • Some non-traditional applications used to get beds up and running fast (what went well and what didn’t)
  • How adjustments have been made on the hospital campus during the evolution of the ever-changing environment
  • What are some of the design implications or considerations being made to the facility and campus buildings for the future?
