Small Hospital Big Idea contest invites all designers to compete
on Friday,March 11,2011 20:03
A new competition announced by Kaiser Permanente is inviting designers from every discipline - from architects to students of design colleges to engineers - to contribute their ideas to its Small Hospital, Big Idea contest.
The goal of the competition is to find a new, innovative concept for a hospital that incorporates sustainable, economic and patient-oriented practices into its design.
"We are not just looking for dynamic building designs," said Benjamin Chu, MD, president of Kaiser Permanente Southern California. "We want a partner with fresh ideas on how technology and medicine can reshape our current medical delivery infrastructure to provide even more exceptional, effective and convenient care to our members."
The company is seeking ideas that empower patients so that they have more control and access over healthcare solutions. Finalists in the competition can win up to $750,000 for an idea and the winner will earn a contract with Kaiser Pemanente to help construct the hospital.
Architects are expected to be in high demand in the coming years and employment is estimated to grow faster than the national average. In 2008, there were 141,200 Americans employed in this position, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
