[insert-author-info] The healthcare industry is changing rapidly to adapt to Americans’ desires for faster, more convenient, and less costly treatment options. The demand for out-patient services is rising and the healthcare industry is adapting to meet that demand by repurposing hospital space and opening more ambulatory surgery centers nationwide. People are also visiting retail clinics at their local CVS, Walgreens, or Walmart to receive fast, affordable treatments. What does this movement away from traditional hospital care mean for the future of healthcare engineering and architecture?
