About the Book

"The constrained atmosphere of rising costs and falling reimbursement threatening the efficiency and safety of the American hospital is practically screaming for Lean-led design and planning. Addressing years of process workarounds and poor space utilization, this book takes readers through the various stages of the Lean design development philosophy, including Lean architectural design and Lean work design. It provides a simplified timeline of architectural planning, using examples from eight real healthcare facility design and construction projects, and interviews with hospital leaders and architects"--Provided by publisher.
