Next week catch Payette Associate Alison Laas discuss the integration of regional hospitals into healthcare networks at the 2019 NEHES Conference in Groton, CT on September 22-25, 2019. The conference, which is themed Building for the Future: Assessing Risk while Maintaining Compliance, will provide essential tools for successful facility management.
Integration of a Regional Hospital into a Healthcare Network
The integration of Regional Hospitals into Healthcare Networks comes with a wide variety of challenges; consistent delivery of patient care, administrative service, procurement, finance as well as facility design and construction.
The integration process always begins with detailed facility assessment that among other things includes a review of patient services and reliability of utility systems. In many cases upgrades to utility systems are urgently needed but need to be balanced against master planning, available capital and facility reliability.
Yale New Haven Health is currently well into the process of integrating L+M Hospital, Pequot Medical Center and Westerly Hospital into the Yale New Haven Health network. Our case study will outline lessons learned with regard to risk assessment (utility systems) and the path to compliance.
- Facility Assessments – are required to identify shortcomings
- Code Compliance – is required to meet the mission goals of reliable and safe healthcare
- Master Planning – is necessary to ensure that upgrades enable future flexibility and growth
