The COVID19 pandemic altered all our lives, including drastic shifts in the way healthcare is provided. It has had and will continue to have a lasting impact on the way clinics are designed. New building components such as exterior testing shelters, barriers between patients & staff, vaccine storage rooms, and telehealthcare are just a few of the transformations that have already impacted clinic construction. This presentation will explore these recent dramatic design shifts, along with comparing two clinics by the same client, one built the year before the pandemic, and the other built a year after. What changed? What might be next? Case studies and evidence-based design methods will be featured.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

1. Find out how Covid changed clinic design
2. Learn evidence based design methods for clinic design
3. Explore case studies of pre and post Covid designed clinics
4. What design changes might impact clinics next
