16:30 PANEL DISCUSSION: Western Perspectives on How to Design Facilities That Meet & Exceed Seismic Regulations’ Standards

In this session, design and capital planning executives from several West Coast healthcare networks will dicuss what keeps them up at night, and how western health systems are steering capital investments.
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:

  • Design strategies for seismic regulatory compliance---in particular, recent revisions to CA’s SB 1953 bill
  • Sustainability---mandates and healthy communities
  • Integrated care team model strategies and benefits
  • Operationally-driven design strategies challenging what we do today to maximize ROI and provide more capacity in the system
  • Industry trends, perspectives, and lessons learned
