WellStar Paulding Hospital, Hiram, Ga., designed by CDH Partners, is another facility for which safety was a prime directive during design. Mark Haney, president, WellStar Paulding Hospital, explains that the hospital developed a program called “safety to the fourth power” to lead design decisions.
