  • OSHPD: The Best Practices in California Healthcare Facilities Presented by Gary Dunger, California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD), Facilities Development Division (FDD)


  • 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?  Eric Stein, SVP/Regional Manager, Harsch Investments and Chair of BOMA Codes Committee

  New Technologies Reshaping the Design, Operations & Performance in Healthcare Facilities
  • Recent research shows there are as many as 58 different technologies in a typical healthcare facility. Most affect patient outcomes. Hear from in-the-field industry experts and CIOs of leading healthcare systems
  Design, Construction, & Project Management


  • Leveraging the Brand without Breaking the Bank - Exterior and interior branding in medical facilities can increase market share and improve patient experience. The trick is doing it within a tight budget. Interactive panel addresses key design & construction issues. Mark Krejchi, Ph.D., Healthcare Manager, Wilsonart; Sean Keathley, President, Adrenaline; Charles Parks, Director/Senior Medical Planner, KMD Architects


  • Latest Research: Seven California Hospital Projects Reveal Construction Warning Signs - A deep dive reflection on seven inpatient acute care hospitals recently completed in California was undertaken. This study revealed several success factors and warning signs when comparing projects that navigated smoothly and those that exhibited warning signs when faced with challenges. Highlighted are key research findings. George Hurley, Healthcare Core Market Leader, DPR Construction; Laurel Harrison, Vice President & Chair, Health Sector, Stantec; Michelle Malone, Executive Director of Facilities & Construction, Chinese Hospital

  • Making Next Generation Clinics & MOBs Pencil Out  - One third of medical office space is outdated and needs upgrading.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. Led by Debbie Jacobs, Director, Catalyst

  • Connecting the Dots between Real Estate, Design, Construction, and Building Material Disciplines in Next Generation Medical Buildings - Projects fail to reach their full potential because people fail to tap the knowledge of other disciplines. A team of savvy pros will share how they connect the dots to avoid needless changes, delays, and added costs
