Master planning: 5 topics to
discuss with the C-suite

Gary Vance

The specialty of healthcare master planning is going
through a series of changes, mirroring the current evolution of the healthcare industry itself. What's particularly
interesting about this is the comprehensive nature of
these types of initiatives, which may include several new
components such as connecting the traditional hospital
campus with related medical services near and far.
To understand this shift is to gain insight into what a
hospital's board of directors and C-suite team are thinking
about when it comes to their facilities. Here are some topics worth discussing with them:
1. Focus and update master plans frequently
With rapid changes taking place within the industry,
healthcare organizations must be more agile and flexible
in their design and facility-related discussions. The trends
toward outpatient services and hospital-employed physicians offer many more possible partnerships and business
opportunities. In addition, the changing patient-centric and
physician-centric orientation requires new strategic directions with more frequent master plan updates.

2. Conduct system-wide master plans for all sites and
facilities that serve patients
As healthcare systems have grown over the last decade,
their facilities that serve and treat patients are often an
eclectic mix of new, aged, and acquired facilities. In addition, as many physicians and physician groups are now
employed by healthcare organizations, their facilities have
become part of the hospital's facility asset portfolio. All of
these factors result in myriad market service conditions and
demographics for these systems to integrate. Similarly, from
a facility perspective, systems end up with myriad physical
plant assets to maintain, manage, and integrate into their
respective master planning process.
3. Engage a hospital's neighborhood and community
in the planning process
In recent years, there's been a movement toward hospitals
being viewed as an important community asset with an
outpatient and wellness focus. This has been translated in
many ways and, in particular, by providing on-campus parks
and wellness amenities. We no longer think of the hospital
as a place to go only when we're sick or in need of medical
care; we now think of the neighborhood as a healthy, fun,
and social place where we live and work.
4. Provide planning solutions for population health
and wellness
A comprehensive strategy for population health includes
both on-campus and off-campus facility solutions for patients, visitors, caregivers, staff, physicians, and the community at large. These wellness solutions include diagnostics,
treatment, fitness, and education. When population health
and wellness criteria are in the master planning process
and execution, appropriate facility recommendations are
implemented.
5. Utilization of focused master planning to validate
required Phase 1 projects
With limited capital available for facility construction projects,
it's very important to ensure that the implementation of
every project fits within the framework of the master plan.
It's now considered a responsible practice to analyze and
test Phase 1 projects by utilizing a focused master planning
process to validate specific projects prior to implementation.
This type of planning process is often utilized to determine
the most appropriate project solutions so capital will be
expended for its best use.
When considering these concepts one at a time, they
may not seem like significant changes at first. However,
collectively, these represent the evolution of a traditional
process that's been a mainstay of the healthcare industry for
decades.-Gary Vance, president, Vance Consulting
