3Good summary of a complex topic
By Davidsam
This book provides a very good summary of the complexities involved in healthcare construction as stated in the previous reviews. As a construction project manager and licensed architect looking to break into the health care construction field, I found this book to be a good starting point but only a starting point. Continued research into the AHCA, Joint Commission and NFPA99 are necessary to even begin to become versed in this complex topic.
