Texas Tech Human Sciences Student Team Wins Design Competition

Rob Snyder,

A Texas Tech team has won a healthcare design competition.

The student-design team, comprised of College of Human Sciences Students, took top honors at the 2012 Nurture Collegiate Healthcare Design Competition.

Judges for the competition found that the team’s project, “Innovative Design for Cancer Centers through the Use of ‘Care Control Stations’” did an outstanding job of supporting mobile workers and solving the challenges they face.

The team suggests that a CCS replace a nurses’ station, and should consist of three different zones with varying levels of collaboration, privacy, and access to technology.

This is to enhance staff collaboration, and improve work flow and mobility in the space.

“The thought process was impressive and the design concepts link well to problem statements,” said Elise Valoe, judge and health care researcher at Nurture by Steelcase.

The students on the team include students Rehab Aburas, Haitham El-Hammali, Islam Obeidat, Duy Pham, Diana Sabouni, and their academic advisor Debajyoti Pati.
