Drive-Thru Medical Clinics

NBBJ's Care Unit Concept Envisions Doctors Treating Patients in Cars

— July 4, 2020 — Autos
Access health-care services has mostly been limited to telehealth services in recent months but architecture firm NBBJ has a different vision for the future of healthcare, as seen in its care unit concept. During COVID-19, drive-in and drive-thru models have become popular beyond fast food restaurants, as they naturally put distance between staff and guests. NBBJ is applying the same idea to medical clinics with its vision for a drive-thru model that would allow doctors to treat patients in their cars.

The In Car Care Unit recognizes that the global pandemic is keeping people from going to the hospital, yet there are still various reasons why people need access to in-person care. The In Car Care Unit concept was devised to support the next generation of hospital clinics and help people feel safe while they're receiving care.
