Signature Series

As healthcare struggles with lower reimbursement and an influx in newly insured patients, hospitals are trying to define what these changes mean for their facilities over the next five years. Maryland, DC and Virginia hold some of the most powerful systems in the country, are these changes affecting their capital dollars as well? Join SMPS MD and DC in a joint panel, as we hear from some of the leaders in the industry speak on what the future holds for them. Access to healthcare, the aging population, hospital experience, technology, evidence based practices, and environmental responsibility are all affecting the way we design and build healthcare facilities, is your firm ready for the future of healthcare construction? Discussion topics will include: recent legislation affecting Healthcare projects; overview of trends in the market and how they are affecting design and construction; what you need to know about the procurement process; case studies of recent projects; and information about upcoming projects.
