Healthcare is rapidly expanding alongside population growth in most cities. In San Diego, healthcare clinics and urgent care facilities are moving into retail centers to better accommodate population centers, and the trend is among the biggest changes for the architects and designers outfitting these spaces, according to speakers at a recent CREW San Diego luncheon. The speakers discussed why healthcare integration into retail spaces is among the top trends in response to growing demand for healthcare.

“Currently, the most prolific expansion of healthcare services is the integration of healthcare facilities, like clinics and urgent care, into retail centers,” Mila Volkova, director of healthcare design at Ware Malcomb. “The industry is shifting towards providing care to people where they already are, rather than going to a dedicated healthcare campus for outpatient services. These retail centers may include clinical services together with regenerative activities such as yoga and meditation.”
