Several factors drive the necessity for new facilities and equipment in the healthcare space. Building age and functionality, advances in technology, and competition for patients and employees are some of the reasons that health system administrators must find ways to continue to fund new projects in a tough market environment. Whether the new spaces are in the form of expansion, renovation or new construction, creative approaches to funding are vital to ensuring sustainable and successful projects. This track will explore the demands that healthcare systems are facing when it comes to funding growth and revitalization. Discussion will include potential alternatives to traditional capital resources, the importance and benefits of evidence-based decision making, and why budgets should reflect first costs but also Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
