Healthcare design represents one of the biggest challenges for consulting engineers. Medical facilities often contain a diverse mix of specialties, services and programs including patient care, education, research and community outreach. These facilities include preventative care practices, medical office buildings, out-patient facilities, ambulatory surgery centers as well as full facility hospitals. Each type of facility is unique and today incorporates a blend of functions. Furthermore, healthcare facilities often house specialty equipment such as Imaging Equipment, NMRs, MRIs, Electron Microscopy and BSL Laboratories.
