This book showcases the many new facilities that have been completed since Designing the World's Best Children's Hospitals was published in 1999, and demonstrates the progress made over recent years in creating healing environments.
It also serves as a reference guide for teams of
health care and design professionals, as well as parents, who are starting the exciting journey of creating a healing
environment in a new hospital or renovated pediatric unit. This book provides ideas of facilities to visit, many examples of work from the best design firms in the field, and a wealth of ideas for the design of facilities other than children's hospitals.
