In this age of declining resources and evolving care delivery models, healthcare providers are grappling with how to make the best long-term facility investments to advance their strategic goals and manage risk. This session will review the major healthcare trends, such as payment models, demographic shifts, technological advances, personalized health and others, that affect facility planning and feature how careful master planning can allow incremental change and growth through renovation and expansion without limiting future options in uncertain times. A case study will highlight how one major healthcare system has incorporated these values into their planning, highlighting both the successes and failures of planning on their campuses. The session will include a checklist of issues to be considered when evaluating a prospective project including the principles of adaptability, convertibility and expandability.

1.  Identify key healthcare trends that will affect facility planning in the next decade.
2.  Understand how adaptability, convertibility and expandability can provide facility future-proofing.
3.  Evaluate design strategies that can readily incorporate change.
4.  Review a client’s master planning case study highlighting successes and failures.
