Changes to the Hospital Guidelines clarify require- ments and allow fl exibility in some designs to support development of facilities that will be functional over the long term. Key changes affect clinical telemedicine spaces, accommodations for patients of size, mobile/ transportable units, sterile processing and examina- tion, procedure, operating and imaging rooms. The documents are available for purchase as single-user and site licenses on MADCAD. Print copies and print/site license bundles will be available. Visit fgi.MADCAD. com for full details.

The Medical Clinic at Holloman AFB is a new 100,000-square-foot outpatient facility. The clinic embraces the S outhwest desert landscape and channels abundant natural light into the two-story public spaces where patient waiting and reception is located. The public spaces are further defi ned with integrated interior design components creating a serene, calming atmo- sphere. The project was designed to achieve energy savings and sustainability requirements. The San Antonio Military Medical Center Hyperbaric Facility addition brings together the patient care, teaching and research func- tions of a new clinical service to the medical center campus. It features extensive use of natural daylight that enhances the waiting area. The addition is built around a large multi-place chamber and a single mono-place chamber with clinical, administrative and technical space to support this modality of care. The facility was designed around the patient, providing abundant natural light and views to the outside for positive distractions while waiting and preparing for long hyperbaric dives.
