CSA Z8000 Canadian Health Care Facilities - Planning, Design and Construction

The design and construction of hospitals, medical offices and other health care facilities is a critical element in the continued delivery of quality healthcare 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 Canadian Health Care Facilities provides a nationally recognized baseline for the design and construction of hospitals and selected care facilities.

Highlights of CSA Z8000

  • Essential elements and specific requirements for the planning, design and construction of health care facilities, both public and private.
  • Applies to all facilities providing health care services regardless of type, size, location or range of services.
  • Covers new facilities ("Greenfield" construction) as well as existing facilities undergoing addition or renovation.
  • Specific planning and design elements such as site and facility development, inpatient functional service, diagnostic and treatment/functional service, and support functional service.
