Kahler Slater Presented at Academic Medical Center Conference

Using an evidence-based design process that included benchmarking, observational research, interviews and rapid prototyping, Kahler Slater designed improved learning and healing experiences at the National University Health System Medical Centre, Singapore.

Kahler Slater presented its innovative approach and design at the Tradeline Academic Medical and Health Science Center Conference in Scottsdale, AZ on November 15, 2010. This research was featured in the May/June issue of Healthcare Design Magazine, “Applying the EDAC process to a clinical education environment”.

The 775,000 SF Medical Centre includes the National Cancer Institute, eight specialty outpatient clinics, outpatient surgery and imaging centers and serves as a primary teaching venue for the Yong Loo Li School of Medicine.
