To Our Readers Curb appeal is nice when you're building new or redesigning the old, but there's more to creating a top-notch surgical facility than looks alone. (Although our 6-page pictorial beginning on page 4 might make you think otherwise.) The best surgical facilities are filled with equipment that helps your surgeons operate more effectively, technologies that help staff work more efficiently and design features that help your patients feel more at home. You'll find examples of all of that and more in the Manager's Guide to Surgical Construction as you start drawing up plans for spaces that meet your need for form and function.
