Patients aren’t the only ones getting bigger. In spite of major advances in technology and cash infusions, healthcare spaces are expanding. Maybe rooms just need more space for all the new devices that are used in care, or maybe hospital projects need to go on a diet.
This week, AIA Seattle and AHP Medical are hosting a medical forum “The future of healthcare: Supersized or lean?
The event will include a seminar with H. Scot Latimer of Kurt Salmon Associates called “Are we Supersizing Healthcare?”
Another lecture, by J. Michael Rona of Rona Consulting Group, will address what kind of leadership is needed for a lean transformation in healthcare. I’m looking forward to hearing their takes and learning more about what kinds of waistlines local architects are seeing in upcoming projects in the current economy.
