Building the Hospital of Tomorrow: Rehabilitate, Renovate or Replace

February 21, 2013, 5:30 to 8 p.m, Hillcrest Hospital

This program will focus on strategic decision making for space use, renovation, repurposing and expansion as well as technical considerations for these kinds of projects.

Flexible and effective use of inpatient and ambulatory spaces in an evolving healthcare market is a challenge for healthcare leaders. In today’s competitive marketplace, significant capital expenditure decisions can make or break a healthcare organization and the career of the executive tasked with making such decisions or executing on them.

After years of relative dormancy, the healthcare construction boom continues throughout the U.S. for a variety of reasons, many of which impact both small community hospitals and large urban health systems alike. Additionally, competition and patient demand move organizations to incorporate the latest advances in care delivery, medical technology, new building codes, patient safety and healing design elements to enhance the patient experience through the surrounding environment.

The program will be hosted at Hillcrest Hospital and will feature a panel of healthcare leaders and content experts sharing their experience and expertise in this field including:

Terri Barber
Vice President Support Services/ CIO at Southwest
Southwest General Hospital

Larry Fischer
Principal
Perspectus Architecture

Joseph Strauss
