  • Medical institutions remodel existing hospital buildings rather than construct buildings to satisfy patient satisfaction and enhance competitiveness with other medical institutions. Medical institution remodeling is gradually increasing due to enhanced laws and systems to improve the quality of medical services and the level of patient safety. However, prior studies were discussed only within a limited range, including architectural elements, about medical institution remodeling. Therefore, this study aims to provide basic data to medical institutions planning future remodeling by examining the legal issues of medical institution remodeling in various ways. Medical institution remodeling extends the construction period due to restrictions on construction conditions, and causes damage such as noise and dust to patients. So it is necessary to prevent damage to patients in advance and to support appropriate remodeling of medical institutions. Therefore, it is necessary to prepare an Act on promotion of and support for remodeling of medical institutions. In addition, medical institutions should prepare a checklist for voluntary compliance with construction standards, preventive measures and post-improvement measures, and measures for infection and radiation exposure in hospitals.
