Abbott NW in Minneapolis has some new architecture to cope with this, but it is still very "old building with lots of wings" maze. The attached Children's hospital is very much a well made entity similar to Cleveland, until you cross over into the Abbott side. They never had the time to rethink the entire hospital, because of the caseload. Maybe some day they'll redo it, but I think they tend to reinvest in patient care rather than architecture. Is this an accident of history or the result of conscious decision-making?
