The 2017 edition of Award Winning ICU Designs is now available. Functional intensive care unit (ICU) design is crucial to delivering quality critical care. To honor the best examples of such design, an annual awards program is cosponsored by the Society of Critical Care Medicine, the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses, and the American Institute of Architects Academy of Architecture for Health.
This interactive web-based program contains the top projects since 1992, with each project reviewed in short video segments. The companion PDF document contains the features and floor plan of each winning unit. Also included is the Society’s “Guidelines for Intensive Care Unit Design” and a preface from former Co-Chair Dan R. Thompson, MD, MA, FACP, FCCM. This product provides a complete, contemporary resource for creating a facility that fulfills the needs of both ICU patients and caregivers.
