ample. But, overall, the project must reflect the community
and provide the services its residents require. "It's really
about mixed-use development," Carpenter said.
For Union Village, the plan is to serve a senior population, providing housing that connects back to the healthcare pieces in a pedestrian-friendly environment. However,
the hospital itself would serve a broader patient base, offering children's, cancer, and skilled nursing specialty care.
Since the undertaking of master planning for such a
large-scale project may be overwhelming for a hospital to
take on alone, Carpenter encouraged attendees to find
community partners interested in exploring and supporting the idea. "It's hard to go out and pay for a master plan
that's really a community plan," he said.-JKS

aging population, and market consolidation. But there are
plenty of other internal drivers, like the push toward smaller
facilities, decentralization of the hospital, sustainability
needs, and prevalence of technology in care.
Taking those trends into account, Foulkes said master
planning for a health village should be broad and look
well beyond an acute care model. It should also be
shorter in duration than traditional master plans, costdriven, flexible, and sustainable.
With a hospital anchor, these communities can have
retail, entertainment, and cultural centers while offering
residential components, too. And those additional pieces
can be tied back to the healthcare component. For example, Carpenter said, instead of paying the more expensive cost per square foot to build a conference center at a
hospital, the facility could instead make use of one within
the campus hotel.
And while a health village can be very broad in scope to
serve a more general population, variations on the model
can be much more specific, serving particular groups of
patients, like a dementia village or a dialysis village, for ex-
