Summaries of the presentations follow.
 
The Solidification and Final Destination of American Healthcare
Presentation by Marc Sauvé, MBA, LEAN
 
The final destination of America’s healthcare system is vividly clear. The political smokescreen by both parties can no longer hide the cost increases and socioeconomic damage. The megatrends of true consumerism, big data and virtual care connectivity are driving us to tomorrow’s delivery model. Today’s master plans are complex endeavors, as systems begin to rationalize services across a region. True physician partnerships and new leadership skillsets are required to navigate this politically volatile landscape. In this presentation, Sauvé delves into the market forces, cultural shifts and technology drivers of tomorrow’s healthcare system.
 
Healthcare Prefabrication – Top Down Commitment Maximizes Outcome
Presentation by Steve Verner, EDAC, Joe Ferdelman, Randy Sleeper, Bernie Sublette and Brian D. Teske
 
A collaborative approach to healthcare construction through prefabrication and other facilitating processes begins with ownership and extends all the way through subcontractors and suppliers. In this presentation, learn about the processes used on the Mount Carmel Health Grove City project and hear from an owner, an architect, an engineer and a subcontractor. From the conceptual stage of design right up to the first patient, a team approach is key for success. 

“I’m looking forward to driving discussions about how we can continue to design healthcare facilities that improve the health of the communities they serve. From Marc’s presentation on the state of American healthcare, to my case study on prefabrication at Mount Carmel Health’s Grove City campus, attendees will leave this year’s Symposium with planning and design strategies to effectively face the evolving industry.”
