The design and construction of hospitals, medical offices and other health care facilities is a critical element in the continued delivery of quality healthcare in Canada. These facilities are designed and built with sophisticated systems and as a result, the need for a national common and consistent standard for design and construction has become readily apparent. CSA Z8000 Canadian Health Care Facilities provides a nationally recognized baseline for the design and construction of hospitals and selected care facilities.
