BJC HealthCare is committed to improving the health and well-being of the people and communities we serve and this Manual of Practice supports our commitment. The purpose of this manual is to singularly communicate expectations regarding policies, guidelines and standards for the planning, design and construction of the physical, built environments. While this manual serves as a means to document lessons learned from past project experiences, BJC HealthCare has an expectation for companies engaged in providing design and construction-related services to have an inherent understanding and knowledge of healthcare-related projects. These practices will enable BJC HealthCare to provide healing environments to better serve the community.
