The idea behind "onstage and offstage"
The layout of the new Hospital is designed for maximum efficiency, using a common-sense approach that we call "onstage and offstage."
With a network of dedicated work spaces - the offstage areas - patients can be moved throughout the building with greater privacy while physicians and staff navigate their way through the building in corridors that are separate from visitors.
These same behind-the-scenes areas will also be used for transporting equipment, laundry, meals and supplies, ensuring the public areas remain focused on the public.
