Main Conference: Day One

08:00 AM - 09:00 AM Registration & Networking Breakfast

09:00 AM - 09:15 AM Chairperson’s Welcome

The West Coast presents unique challenges relative to property development in support of health system formation. West Coast payors and providers must develop a service mix for one of the most diverse populations in the country. They must simultaneously address a regulatory environment that mandates FGI standards, the quality of the work/care environment and codes relative to an active seismic landscape. An effective Master Plan must address all of these issues. In this session we will present the Saint Agnes Medical Center’s Master Plan in Fresno CA---as a Case Study of the myriad influences faced by a West Coast provider focused on expanding their service offering while addressing health system and regulatory demands.

In this session we will address:

  • Clinical service distribution for ambulatory and inpatient services
  • Physician participation in planning and service provision
  • The implications of SB 1953, Seismic Retrofit
  • Strategic focus on clinical and real property strengths

11:00 AM - 11:45 AM CASE STUDY/PANEL DISCUSSION: Partnership Between Walgreens and Providence Health & Services

Robin M Kosiek, Director, Healthcare Asset Development, Facilities Development Division, Walgreens Co.
In August 2015, Walgreens and Providence Health & Services announced a strategic clinical collaboration aimed at coordinating patient care and improving patient access, which plans to bring up to 25 new retail clinics to Oregon and Washington state. The clinics will be owned and operated by Providence and its affiliates, and become the first to open at Walgreens stores under a new collaborative services model.
Providence Express Care at Walgreens, or Swedish Express Care at Walgreens in the Seattle area, will provide an integrated health care option for patients with a known, trusted provider, while helping to evolve the retail clinic model from urgent episodic care to more coordinated care. In the near term, Walgreens and Providence will open three clinics in both the Portland and Seattle areas in early 2016, with plans for further expansion within the next two years.

Attend this session to learn more about:

  • How the design team will plan and implement their multi-unit facilities initiative
  • Strategic internal and external partnerships to ensure project delivery success

Director, Healthcare Asset Development, Facilities Development Division
Walgreens Co.
In this session, design and capital planning executives from several healthcare networks will kick off an extended session to discuss what they feel are the top pressing subjects that should be addressed at this time---based upon market trends, demands, and concerns.
Later in the hour, the session will turn into a lively Q&A session---with audience members asking the Owners follow up questions and speakers and audience members sharing their thoughts in an open dialogue format.

In this session, we will examine:

  • Future trends and how to effectively navigate said landscape
  • How to trouble-shoot the top challenges facing the industry
  • And much more!

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Networking Lunch Break

2:00 PM - 2:45 PM Maximize Your Lighting Designs to Enhance Patient Recovery & Clinician Performance

The lighting environment of a facility not only can enhance a patient’s recovery process, it can also enhance your workforce’s productivity. With lighting being such an integral component to your

facility, designing and then optimizing lighting in the most effective manner is of great value to your facility’s overall success.

In this session, we will explore:

  • How to ensure your facility meets sustainability codes and most especially, adheres to Title 24’s guidances to put into place design systems that maximize energy conservation
  • Lighting trends and sustainability ROI outcomes

2:45 PM - 3:30 PM PANEL DISCUSSION: Optimize Your Emergency Rooms to Improve Patient Care & Delivery

Jocelyn Frederick, Principal, Tsoi/Kobus & Associates
At many hospitals, most especially large urban public hospitals, their emergency rooms are the hub, and/or central point where patient care begins. With streamlined, efficient, customer-centric emergency rooms, a hospital is able to better care for their patients. In this session, we will discuss innovative design layouts that put into account advancements in technology---and cut back on patient wait time, increase delivery of care, and improve inter-department transfers of patients to their next destination within your hospital system.

In this session, we will also examine:

  • How pleasing and engaging waiting areas within emergency rooms and their annex treatment rooms aid in patient recovery outcomes
  • Ambulatory-to-emergency room entrance areas and interior passage ways that increase workflow processes and performance

3:30 PM - 4:00 PM Afternoon Networking Break

4:00 PM - 4:45 PM U.S. Department of Defense & Veterans Affairs Medical Centers: A Very Big Business!

Joshua A. Theodore, Principal – Health Industries, Page
The U.S. Department of Defense, Veterans Integrated Service Networks (VISN), and the V.A. Healthcare System have hundreds of hospitals and outpatient centers under their domain. In this session, we will examine how these government agencies manages their design & build projects---and collaborate with private sector design firms and vendors to meet their current and growing needs.

In this session, we will explore:

  • How to effectively collaborate between a vast system of national facilities
  • Retro-fits, expansions, and outpatient centers in the works

4:45 PM - 5:30 PM The Hospital Left Behind – What’s the Next Chapter for Our Aging Healthcare Infrastructure?

Sarah Bader, Principal, Gensler
The transition from inpatient to outpatient has had a dramatic effect on hospital vacancy rates as more hospitals struggle with how to balance a declining inpatient population in facilities designed to support an old model of care. Changing demographics and mergers and acquisitions are creating further pressures on these aging facilities. What is the future for these architectural eyesores or icons?

In this session, we will discuss:

  • The economics driving the real estate decisions to repurpose or demolish
  • Project benchmarks and case studies – which facilities have solved this problem well, where are the lessons learned?
  • What are the design solutions we can all learn from?
  • Understand economic parameters driving real estate decisions to repurpose or demolish
  • Explore industry benchmarks to understand key components for successful facility transitions
  • Learn effective design strategies to capitalize on existing infrastructure

Sarah Bader

Let’s face it, without a strong operations department alliance, design work orders simply won’t push along as needed. Design builds are challenging on a budgetary and logistical level. In order to ensure a project runs according to plan, solution options must be developed prior to build---and then executed when needed throughout the build process. In this session, we will examine a wide variety of obstacles that come up in a design project and how to solve these problems by
working effectively with your operations department.

Attend this session to learn more about:

  • Effective budget/project management, from production to actual
  • Manpower shortages and how to solve this matter
  • Exploring technologies that drive time management and mitigate
  • change orders
