Healthcare Facilities Urged to Create Leaner Working Environments
August 22, 2016 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
Healthcare facilities should create leaner working environments to help providers to move toward a more cost-effective delivery model, according to an article on the Healthcare Construction + Operations website.
Healthcare leaders need to identify financing mechanisms that will limit their initial capital investment and enable them to cost-effectively use facilities over the next five to 10 years, the article said.

Healthcare organizations should think like a commercial real estate company, which considers in advance how it will profitably leverage a building.
