Significant changes to regulations and guidelines for healthcare facilities are underway as the pandemic has exposed the vulnerabilities of healthcare buildings due to the impact of infectious diseases and required emergency response measures.

As part of HMC’s ongoing research effort to better understand the long-term effects of COVID-19 and develop solutions for our healthcare system, we are exploring the pandemic as an opportunity to learn, reinvent, and most importantly help our clients amid the crisis, and their financial hardship.

HMC is committed to sharing our findings with the industry in a series of white papers that focus on five main areas of Technology, Adaptability and Flexibility, Regulatory/Budgetary/Institutional Impacts, Space Needs/Reduction and Restructuring, and Impact to Wellness/Mental Health. In this paper, we discuss the regulatory, budgetary, and institutional impacts of COVID-19 as it relates to the healthcare sector.


By connecting intelligence and insight with creativity, we are able to advance innovation to better understand the needs of our clients and bring them the future of design.
