This book presents 73 health care projects selected by a jury of the American Institute of Architect's Academy of Architecture for Health. These projects represent the state of the art in hospitals and medical centers, cancer centers, paediatric facilities, long-term care facilities, ambulatory care centers, women's health centers, and other specialized care centers.

Each topic includes the architect's statement and is supported with excellent quality coloured photographs of internal and external aspects of projects and also a floor plan. The book includes citations awarded by jury of AIA to 7 projects judged exceptional. The diverse range of projects featured address the emerging concerns of health care delivery and express new approaches through architecture.
