Healthcare is getting smaller.. and growing!
Hire an architect that understands MOB Operations
Capital costs can be daunting. But at less than 10% of the annual healthcare spending, they are not the primary reason our healthcare spending in the U.S. is equal to the entire economy of Germany. The United States spent $3.3 trillion on healthcare in 2016; the German economy was valued at $3.48 trillion in 2016. Looking at the big picture, staffing represents over 70% of healthcare costs and nurses spend up to 20% of each day searching for equipment. Hiring an experienced architect that can help you plan for those activities.
Streamline staff convenience
Healthcare reform has created a climate where we are constantly in transition and convergence when considering a number of factors — economic, environmental, social, cultural, clinical and technological. When addressing these fundamental issues, we are finding the best way to address the junction of these issues is to streamline staff convenience. Smaller is better, whether we are designing smaller buildings or smaller units within a larger building. Smaller healthcare facilities are being built in small towns across the country and they will become more prevalent in the future.
