Purpose- Social infrastructure projects such as hospital construction projects are complex in nature and having a very high operational costs associated with them. In the health care services delivery system, denial of the infrastructure forms creates a huge loss for the human and other resources. Services of the patients, availability of the required equipment, efficiency and emergency medical services are directly associated with the infrastructure of the hospital. In today's world, the design of the hospitals is playing an important role. In case of life threating situation requires infrastructural facilities at the time he arrives at the hospital where the key channel of flow is the entry point of the hospital to another point the respective rooms. This study is covering all the major aspects where researchers have explored the reasons for a quantitative approach. Research results are conclusive in nature. Design/methodology-The research paper is based on a structured questionnaire shared with with 225 number of respondents working in Indian construction sector and 94 valid responses were received out of 225 with a response rate of 41.7%.The respondents were asked to rate their responses over the Likert scale rating from 1 to 5 for the attributes/ variables impacting infrastructure and hospital design and construction. Findings- The most significant top five attributes/variable of the study was quality of work performed, project team experience, health and safety, location of the project and HVAC having the maximum influence on the design optimization. Furthermore the factor analysis produced 6 constructs such as; Management, environment, design quality, safety and security, efficiency and cost effectiveness and accessibility explains 66% of the variance for the study.
