To the extent possible, prototypical design solutions will be used for similar physical plants. The scope of work at each facilty may include a combination of the following components: construction of additional medication distribution windows; improvement or expansion of space for medication preparation activities, including lighting, sinks, HVAC and information technology; and security upgrades to ensure safe storage of medications.
