Building the Hospital of Tomorrow: Rehabilitate, Renovate, or Replace
Building the hospital of tomorrow in today’s competitive marketplace, significant capital expenditure decisions can make or break a healthcare organization and the career of the executives(s) tasked with such decisions. No capital decision may be greater than the construction of a new facility or the substantial renovation of an existing one.
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. The most common reasons for the renovations, expansions, and replacements include aging facilities, population growth, market demand, and the need to improve operational efficiencies.
Additionally, competition moves organizations to incorporate the latest advances in care delivery, medical technology, new building codes and healing design elements to enhance the patient experience through the surrounding environment. Changes in building codes and patient safety standards also drive the need for construction and modification.
