2014 Edition

In 2014, for the first time, the Facility Guidelines Institute published two Guidelines documents, one for hospitals and outpatient facilities and a second for residential health, care, and support facilities.

Guidelines for Design and Construction of Hospitals and Outpatient Facilities

The 2014 FGI Guidelines for Design and Construction of Hospitals and Outpatient Facilities includes minimum recommended program, space, risk assessment, infection prevention, architectural detail, and surface and built-in furnishing needs for clinical and support areas of hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, and ambulatory care facilities. It also addresses minimum engineering design criteria for plumbing, electrical, and heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems, the latter by incorporating ANSI/ASHRAE/ASHE Standard 170-2013: Ventilation of Health Care Facilities.

Guidelines for Design and Construction of Residential Health, Care, and Support Facilities

The 2014 FGI Guidelines for Design and Construction of Residential Health, Care, and Support Facilities contains minimum recommended program, space, risk assessment, architectural detail, and surface and built-in furnishing needs for nursing homes, hospice facilities, independent and assisted living facilities, and related non-residential support facilities, including wellness centers, day care facilities, and rehabilitation centers. It also addresses minimum engineering design criteria for plumbing, electrical, and heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems.
