The Stamford Hospital MOB (Medical Office Building) is an alternate way to organize Hospital Waiting Room Design that facilitates an increasing number of patients. The MOB features communal resources and promotes staff interaction in ways that are unplanned and therefore foster more comprehensive patient care.
