“Today’s consumers demand a facility that is accessible, that reinforces their need for independence, respects patients’ need for privacy and dignity and preserves confidentiality.” – May Chow, Principal, Parkin Architects Limited
The August 2016 issue of Healthcare Design Magazine: Healthcare Design Showcase, included two articles tied to Parkin; an interview with May Chow and a feature on Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital.
May’s Q&A explores the changing landscape of the healthcare design industry, with details on the impact of healthcare reforms and the importance of collaboration. She explains that today’s consumers are much more involved with their healthcare. Their demands on design have as much impact, and are as important as, those of shareholders.
Close to first anniversary, Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital was featured as an “Acute Care Hospital”. The magazine photographs capture the hospital’s interior design inspiration, colour scheme and materials with bright interior shots. To give readers a better understanding of the project a brief overview of the size and scope, as well as the services provided, is also included. This facility was a joint venture in partnership with Adamson Associates Architects.
