Abstract

This research project focuses on a Digestive Health Clinic that specializes in preventing, diagnosing, and treating digestive and liver disorders. In the United States, 60 to 70 million people are affected by digestive health problems and they need this type of facility to be treated properly. The goal of this kind of clinic is to advance the delivery of care for patients suffering from all digestive health conditions. Every aspect from the space planning to the finishing touches needs to be thought through with the end-users in mind. When designing a healthcare facility, it is important to create a universal design that supports the ADA Standards for Accessible Design, HIPPA Privacy Rules, and include seating accommodations for the bariatric population. Through my exploration of different digestive health disorders such as Chron's disease, celiac disease, and irritable bowel syndrome; I will see how it affects people physically, mentally, and emotionally to make informed decisions about the design. The research will be conducted on what kind of specifications a space like this will require, and it will consist of elements that bring a sense of calmness and well-being for the patients being treated. Sourcing the correct furniture, materials, and finishes is important and will be taken into consideration to create a comfortable, maintainable, and long-lasting facility.
