Lean-Led Hospital Design: Creating the Efficient Hospital of the Future
By Naida Grunden and Charles Hagood
Hospitals across the country are adopting Lean to improve their processes. Can we create a hospital environment that continuously improves, too?
Lean-Led Hospital Design describes how, from the earliest possible concept phase, Lean ideas and processes can improve the efficiency of hospital design, and support better and better processes.
A must-read for any hospital leader or staff member involved in hospital expansion or building, as well as architects, engineers and construction managers.
As new legislation encourages hospitals to compete on quality, hospitals must find new ways to provide consistently efficient and excellent care to every patient—at greatly reduced cost.
Fortunately, one approach is showing promise in improving quality and reducing cost: Toyota-based Lean principles of respect, continuous improvement and waste reduction.
If Lean is starting to change how hospitals are run, it is also starting to change how they are built.
