New Hospital on a New Site - Case Study for Universal Application: Arrowhead Regional Medical Center
The intent of this article is to show how the effective application of the planning principles used in the development of the design for Arrowhead Regional Medical Facility can be applied to the future planning of hospitals in a regional and international context. We seek to demonstrate this thesis by showing how the concepts used in the planning of Arrowhead held up over the 10-year planning, design, and construction of the project, and how the lessons learned in that process were applied to the design of a hypothetical hospital in the Middle East.
