What is Healthcare Construction
With over two years of headlines highlighting COVID trends and housing shortages, healthcare and construction have become primary focuses of our daily lives. However, many are not aware that healthcare construction is a field of its own. During this presentation, we will explore the basics of healthcare construction and the compounded challenges of these individually complex fields. While both sectors suffer from fragmented service delivery, layers of regulations, and outdated systems, there is ample opportunity for innovation and growth. Together we can take healthcare construction from chaos to calm.
- Understand how the built space, and those building it, indirectly impact patient care
- Strategies for maintaining progress in complex and high-risk environments
- Guiding thoughts to help project managers tap into the healthcare industry
- Define healthcare construction
- Explore the challenges of building healthcare facilities
- Identify the various stakeholders and project management roles in healthcare
