  Arriving at the Crossroads: The Decision to Build or Not
  Healthcare systems face a tough choice when selecting the path to growing market share. Growth means some degree of expanding facility space. So you’re grappling with options on buy or lease, renovate, condense and increase efficiency of existing space; or build something new? The biggest: Are we in a financial position to invest large sums of capital?
  Patrick Daniel, former UCSD Chief Administrative Officer, Facilities Planning & Management and Capital Committee Chair. Daniel’s career spans 35 years in managing non-clinical support departments, capital planning, and project management.

Avoiding Compliance Pitfalls in Leased Medical Buildings, Whether You’re Tenant or Owner

  Whether You’re Tenant or Owner. The growth in medical procedures done in an outpatient setting raises the bar for compliance. Even The Joint Commission is now reviewing this. Assessing risks and upholding regulatory compliance in leased buildings is complex, especially if there multiple tenants in a building. Among the questions addressed: What are the risks? Who pays when things aren’t done correctly?

  Armin Wolski, M.Sc., PE, Life Safety Code Consultant, Reax Engineering

Making Next Generation Clinics & MOBs Pencil Out 

  One third of medical office space is outdated and needs upgrading. Yet with rising construction costs, it’s a challenge for healthcare providers and developers to make next generation medical facilities pencil out. See how improving clinical capacity, cutting out no value space can shrink the square footage needed, and standardization can get projects moving.

  Single Tenant Building Perspective: Sunil Shah, Vice President Facilities Planning+Design, National Facilities Service, Kaiser Permanente
  Connecting the Dots Between Owner, Design & Construction in Next Generation Medical Buildings
  Mark Brna, Executive Director, National Facilities Services, Facilities Strategy Planning & Design, Kaiser Permanente


Leveraging the Brand without Breaking the Bank
