Comprehensive guidance for future-proof planning and construction
of sensitive areas in a hospital such as operating rooms (OR), intensive care units (ICU)
and central sterile supply department (CSSD).

Medical technologies and clinical processes are changing more rapidly than ever before. Clinicians strive to deliver high-quality patient care while coping with increased workloads. Every minute gained through optimized processes, improved ergonomics, or enhanced effectiveness can reduce staff stress and improve the focus on patients.

Intelligent, up-to-date workflow concepts increase efficiency through safe and seamless working processes. Many years of experience in the medical sector have given us a deep understanding of clinical routines and hospital workflows.

Our foresighted planning makes the best use of current resources while leaving plenty of space for changes. With Getinge as a partner, your planned facility will not only be able to respond quickly to trends, technologies, and new requirements but also offer the best prerequisite for streamlined workflows.

Based on our experience, we developed optimized room type examples and planning concepts that are designed to improve everyday working life while adhering to your strict budgets and deadlines. We hope that these examples serve as a starting point for planning your individual project.


In a surgical emergency, reaction time is critical. Poorly arranged equipment requiring long walks can be dangerous for staff and patients. That’s why patient, personnel, and instrument flow must be subject to intensive analysis.

Room layouts

Smooth workflow among medical staff is essential for the successful treatment of patients. But the operating room is the intersection of many professional disciplines, each with unique requirements that will only become more sophisticated with time.
