A College Health Center.
Bard, Bernard
This report considers problems and solutions related to the design and establishment of college health facilities. This includes the results of a study involving Colorado, Knox, and Wittenberg Colleges in which personal visits and expert testimony concluded that the health services of small colleges in the central and western states were seriously inadequate. A prototype solution was developed by an architectural firm to meet the needs of small independent liberal arts colleges. Specific considerations included--(1) internal expansion and flexibility, (2) study and recreational facilities, and (3) supervision and space relationships. This solution consisted of a circular building with patient rooms on the perimeter and a raised central nursing station, with auxiliary waiting and treatment rooms and an attached nurses residence. An important feature was the provision of study space which could be replaced with emergency beds. The prototype is intended as a low cost combination clinic and infirmary. Specifications, layouts, and elevations are given with the supporting design analysis. This document was previously announced as ED 015 630. (MM)
