As a leading provider of healthcare construction services, The Douglas Company has directly served healthcare management companies and owners of assisted living facilities for several decades. Indirectly, we’ve also served tens of thousands of elderly residents by providing each of them with a safe, well-designed, well-built home away from home, and thousands of employees of those various facilities by providing them with a convenient, efficient work environment.
Changes in Healthcare Construction
With technological advances and the higher expectations of residents, patients, and their family members, healthcare construction has improved tremendously over the years. Where cold, lifeless institutions once stood, warm and peaceful homelike settings now play an important role in meeting the medical, emotional, and social needs of the elderly and others who require temporary or long-term assistance.
Some of the improvements in healthcare construction in recent years include the addition of fenced-in outdoor walking paths, private porches, beautifully appointed private and semi-private rooms and suites, restaurant-style dining areas and cafes, just to name a few. And, of course, built-in safety features such as grab bars and shower chairs have dramatically reduced slip-and-fall injuries and other preventable accidents.
