The design and construction of hospitals, medical offices and other health care facilities is a critical element in the continued delivery of quality health care in Canada. These facilities are designed and built with sophisticated systems and as a result, the need for a national common and consistent standard for design and construction has become readily apparent.

CSA Z8000 standard provides a nationally recognized baseline for the design and construction of hospitals and selected care facilities. The positive applications of this standard have a long reach from stakeholders in healthcare and occupational health and safety all the way to emergency management and construction.
