How Adaptive Reuse and Accessibility Will Transform the Patient Experience

Conventional hospital buildings will soon be outmoded. While providing a wide range of services under one roof might have seemed efficient at one time, today we understand that very few patients require so much at once. Instead, a distributed system of care—with a bevy of access points and a focus on the patient experience—more efficiently addresses needs, both physical and financial. Today's health care providers understand this and are looking for ways to cost-effectively distribute the most care to the most people, while also enhancing the experience of workers, patients, and the communities that surround them. Simultaneously, developers and owners are looking for solutions for underused real estate of nearly every type, in both downtown and suburban locations, that can be scaled nationally. This panel will bring together top players from the entire health care real estate ecosystem to examine case studies of how a decentralized model can improve health outcomes while realizing the potential of vacant commercial real estate.
