Abstract This study examined the operation methods and spatial compositions of architectural planning data regarding safety and efficiency of outpatient departments in infectious disease hospitals. The business plans of four infectious disease hospitals were reviewed and on-site and interview surveys with hospital officials and medical staff were conducted on the making process of their design guidelines; for three hospitals, their architectural drawings were also analyzed. Upon analysis, it was determined that several infectious disease hospitals in Korea are currently under construction. Considering there were no cases of open and operating hospitals, the adequacy of operation and facility guidelines could not be verified. The framework of operational policies, health clinic services, outpatient functions, and the transition methods of outpatient operations during normal versus crisis times were assessed. Regarding spatial compositions, the results of functional arrangements, room compositions, space compositions and circulations were also presented. This study should be followed up by post occupancy evaluation studies once infectious disease hospitals are completed and opened in the future.
