Facility Strategies for Academic Medicine and the Health Sciences 2016

October 20-21, 2016
Scottsdale, AZ


New directions in healthcare are dramatically changing facility models, metrics, workspaces, and capital plans for academic medical and health science research and education.  Six top-priority issues are now the focus of a new wave of facility initiatives:

1. Improving space management and space utilization
2. Recapturing, upgrading, and redistributing underperforming space
3. Increasing facility flexibility for changing programs
4. Strategic facilities planning for medical research and education, and links to patient care
5. Planning new capital projects, facility renewal, and modernization initiatives
6. Attracting and retaining researchers, students, and faculty

Attend this conference to benchmark your institutional facility strategy and specific project plans against the new plans, metrics, and models that other institutions are putting in place to:

- Reconstitute and revitalize underperforming space
- Introduce new workspace models (open-plan, shared, mixed)
- Share scientific equipment, space, and financial resources
- Review and modify space allocation and planning metrics
- Launch simulation and high-technology training equipment
- Introduce new teaching pedagogies
- Accommodate growth in computational research and bioinformatics
- Integrate engineering with biomedical sciences programs
- Reallocate and repurpose space for new and expanded programs
- Engage faculty, researchers, and students
- Accommodate growth of academic programs
- Increase the adaptability of space for program flexibility
- Strategically collocate programs for efficiency and collaboration
- Reduce capital project and operating costs, and
- Strengthen translational research, genomics-driven healthcare, and institutional partnerships.

Attend with your planning team (facilities planning, space planning and management, finance, administration, facility operations, and academic teaching, research, and clinical programs) to make certain your major decision makers are all on the same facilities planning page for the new models of education, research and healthcare.
