Small decisions can add up to either big savings or bigger costs in the hospital design process, according to an article on the Healthcare Finance News website.
With the average cost of a new hospital ranging from $1.5 million to $2 million per bed, it is increasingly important to executive leadership to achieve the most cost-effective building design possible, the article said.
“There is increased emphasis on operational planning integrated with facility planning with the goal of ‘smarter’ real estate/facilities assets and building less facility with increased throughput/efficiencies,” Fred Campobasso, managing director, Navigant Healthcare Real Estate, said in the article.
Campobasso said he believes “the intersection of retail and healthcare will steadily increase in order to maximize accessibility, reduce costs and improve the patient experience.”
