What do you think is a pressing issue/controversy today with healthcare design?

Design must address the total healthcare environment. The need to attract and retain nursing staff, provide a patient/family-centered healthcare environment, meet the mandate of private rooms, and deal with the lack of healthcare insurance creates a unique business and level-of-care environment. Integrating LEED in healthcare design is also paramount in quality-of-life issues.
