Here’s where Richard and Carol video-call online for fertility consultation

Health care developments may change the entire function of a hospital in the future. Ambitions for the new day treatment and fertility research centre at the Reinier de Graaf Hospital in the Netherlands pivot around being future-proof, sustainable and smart. Deerns designed the future-proof building installations, smart building data infrastructure and sustainable energy supply to ensure the departments and rooms can easily change function based on shifting demands. Developments in healthcare, such as e-health and connected care, could lead to less use of the facility. The outpatient department could then be transformed into an office building or apartments for assisted living.
