This unique book on Hospital Designing and Planning is being presented to you under Dr Malhotra's Series of books.
Most of us are professional doctors who are usually too busy to pay attention to subtle planning of our clinics, nursing homes and hospitals. We doctors usually are our own architects and we build as need arises.
Architects Sangeet Sharma, Purnima Sharma, a dynamic husband-wife team from Chandigarh are well versed with the needs of doctors and have to their credit the designing of big/small hospitals and clinics across India.
In this book Sangeet and Purnima present to you a stepwise approach to designing and building a clinic or a hospital.
Happy reading.
