U.S. healthcare institutions face numerous challenges today, including declining reimbursements, rising costs, and growing demands for services. To better understand these issues and their impact on design and construction trends, Mortenson Construction conducted a survey at the 2011 Fall Healthcare Design Conference. More than 300 professionals provided feedback, including healthcare administrators and facilities managers, architects, builders, and suppliers.
No healthcare institution represented in our survey has reduced services to stabilize finances. Rather, providers are streamlining operations, planning new capital investments, and finding innovative ways to efficiently meet the needs of patients. We are pleased to share with you the following insights and perspectives regarding the U.S. healthcare industry.
