The next big thing in healthcare design is anything but big. Microshospitals are cropping up in local communities as a middle ground between walk-in clinics and tertiary care hospitals. These healthcare hubs are efficiently distributed throughout a region to support a network of care and designed to be scalable to serve the immediate and long-term needs of the community. It's all about delivering hospital care where it's needed to achieve best value, quality, lower cost healthcare.

Unlike standard-sized hospitals, these ambulatory access points typically include eight to 10 impatient beds, eight to 10 emergency treatment bays, and a small imaging and diagnostic suite, with total square footage generally starting out between 15,000 and 25,000 square feet. The phased development allows the facility to grow intelligently with efficient use of resources.

Despite their inflammatory growth, these neighborhood nooks remain disciplined on capital and operational efficiency. In alignment with scaleable growth, furnishings and equipment are acquired as needed. A Synchronized Clock System is just what the doctor ordered, providing a dependable, yet scalable timekeeping system. RF Wireless Clock Systems bundle everything needed to get a facility up and ticking. Every clock displays the same precise, accurate time and automatically resets for Daylight Saving Time and power outages. Once installed, the system easily expands by adding one clock at a time. TimeTrax Sync™ Synchronized Clock Systems are scaled to respond to the needs of small scale facilities.
