Tell us how you're reimagining the medical office building

July 23, 2013

"Obamacare" implementation will add thousands of people to the ranks of the insured, including many who formerly sought primary care in emergency rooms. Now, these patients will have coverage that allows them to more easily access the typical treatment channels—and that means greater demand for services provided in medical office buildings.

How are AEC firms and healthcare providers creating medical office buildings that respond to the changing landscape of healthcare? We'll be exploring these questions with a BD+C article in September. If your firm has completed, or is working on, an interesting medical office building, new or renovated, I invite you to share it with me ASAP. I'd love to see photos as well as your project information, and I'm particularly interested in your thoughts about how the project exemplifies trends in healthcare design. 

Email me at I look forward to hearing from you.
