BRONX, N.Y., March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to help the healthcare industry expand to suit the needs of thecommunity, healthcare construction and development company, Simone, discusses 3 key building considerations for healthcare organization growth.
There are many reasons why a healthcare organization may make the decision to expand, but the
Discussed below are 3 strategies to consider when looking to expand operations.
Facility Size. Baby boomers make up one of the biggest portions of the population and as a group are starting to get to an age where they will need more frequent and comprehensive medical care. One of the biggest mistakes that a healthcare organization can make when expanding into a new facility is failing to account for this spike in demand that looms around the corner. There are a lot of ways to build a hospital in a way that optimizes the treatment process, but many of those considerations will be for naught if there isn't enough space for the hospital to grow.
Open Floor Plan. Open floor plans are becoming more commonplace in the commercial space, and healthcare facilities are no exception. By keeping the hospital as open and accessible as possible, it is far easier for a hospital to accommodate family members that are accompanying patients on visits - a key aspect of patient satisfaction and comfort. As an added benefit, this leaves more space for consult rooms that can streamline the treatment process since many clinic visits don't require a full exam.
Location. Healthcare facilities need to be built to be as accessible as possible, and a lot of that accessibility comes down to the physical location of the building. For the convenience of patients that may not have access to reliable transportation, it's important that proximity to public transportation be taken into account. The location of the facility is also important when it comes to attracting quality staff, bringing considerations like overall employment opportunities and the quality of nearby schools into the mix. Simone has the experience to assist healthcare organizations in their search to find a location that meets their desired criteria, leading to a better patient experience as a whole.
