In a visit to the new VA hospital in New Orleans — officially named the Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care System — The Wall Street Journal describes how intensive research led to design features specifically tailored to the needs of veteran patients. For instance, bathrooms were located for the greatest convenience of the Louisiana veterans who drive hours to reach the hospital. The article also highlights the attention paid to social spaces, furniture, patient rooms, courtyards, a central concourse, color, chapels and the measures taken to ensure emergency preparedness.
