This series of one-day educational events provide the perfect opportunity to shape decisions made by healthcare providers, and those that design, build, own, lease, sell, and finance healthcare facilities.

Increasing government regulations and higher acuity levels are making many healthcare facilities obsolete. Becoming more and more popular is offering healthcare in an off-campus outpatient setting. The new economics of healthcare is resulting in a wave of mergers, acquisitions, and closures.

The Summits will provide insights into these powerful trends:

  • The push to get healthcare services closer to patients is driving the demand for convenience clinics, integrated outpatient clinics, imaging centers, laboratories, ambulatory surgical centers, and palliative care facilities. However, aging acute care hospitals still need to be maintained and upgraded

  • Increasing government regulations and higher acuity levels in all levels of healthcare facilities are making many existing healthcare facilities functionally obsolete, and new ones more complex

  • Decreasing reimbursement rates are forcing healthcare organizations to find new ways to contain the cost of designing, building, operating, and funding healthcare facilities

  • The new economics of healthcare is creating a wave of mergers, acquisitions, and closures. As a result some real estate assets need to be repositioned, others are redundant, and some will require creative solutions to unlock their hidden value

  Target Audience:    

These Summits address the key influencers and decision makers:


Health Systems (whether owner, operator, or tenant): Facilities professionals, plant operations managers, compliance/regulatory officers, supply chain managers, project managers, strategic planners, in-house architects


Design-Build: Architects, designers, engineers, and contractors


Real Estate: Developers, investors, REITs, real estate brokers, accountants, lawyers, consultants, and valuation specialists


  Presented By:    

The educational team at the Corporate Realty, Design & Management Institute and the Health Care Institute of IFMA are committed to delivering high quality educational events in local venues throughout North America.
