The Hospital Floor Plan below shows how a large hospital can be divided into smaller departments and how the circulation can be organized. Some equine practices collaborate with small animal practices to provide more services to their clients, tap into a larger market, and share business risks and rewards. As you can see, floor 3 of a hospital that combines a small animal hospital and a large animal or equine hospital presents its challenges. On the other hand, combining practices is a great way to share resources and save on overall square footage when building a facility. Waiting and Reception, Pharmacy and Laboratory, Doctors' Stations, and Pack/Prep and Scrub are just a few functions that can be shared between the two sides of the hospital.
