How the Future of Healthcare Delivery is Rewriting Today’s Capital Spending Plans

How and where healthcare is offered has changed dramatically in the past few years. Driven by shifts in consumer preferences, demographics, technology adoption, workforce, investor appetite, new competition, reimbursement, and community input. Realize how these forces are affecting service lines, strategic plans, capital spending programs, and ultimately the design and construction of healthcare facilities.

Strategic Planning for Sustainability - Transition from PR Opportunity to Stakeholder Expectation

Not meeting environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals has a real cost. Due to the complexity, scale, and service life of healthcare facilities meeting these goals needs a strategic approach, vision, and long-term outlook. Understand how major healthcare systems are tackling the issues and the role of planning, design, construction, and operations in reaching ESG goals.

► A Deep Dive Into Adaptive Reuse:

Adaptive Reuse Opportunities for Healthcare & Life Science Facilities

Converting office, retail, or industrial buildings to healthcare and life science use is not a simple process. Ceiling heights, infrastructure upgrades, uneven floors, and regulatory codes are just the beginning of a long list of idiosyncrasies. Yet, a great location, speed to market, and minimizing environmental impact are worth it. Explore lessons learned. See how to reduce risks, save time, and create value.

Navigating the Gray Areas of Technology, Equipment and Design

The expectation from healthcare organizations is that design and technology elements should be seamless. Patient care environments need to be flexible and adaptable, clinicians are using data for decision-making, high acuity and critical patient service areas are becoming more connected by technology. However, traditional consultancy solicitations don’t often address the gray areas that arise in a complex project. There is no singular right answer to solve some of the questions, but there is a right one.
