Military Health System (MHS): DoD Space Planning Criteria for Health Facilities

The DoD Medical Space Planning Criteria lists specific requirements, which define and provide specialized working environments within medical facilities according to departments and function areas within the departments. The criteria provides current guidance for the most efficient utilization of space to meet medical requirements. Private sector standards of practice and unique military requirements have been taken into consideration during the development of these criteria.

Each section of space planning criteria provides the purpose and scope, definitions, policies, required program data elements, and specific space planning criteria by functional area.
