Healthcare Design - April 2018 - 29

B

Y ALL ACCOUNTS ,

the healthcare design industry
is on solid ground. Past challenges tied to the Great
Recession and dwindling work, and then a few years
later to healthcare reform and the rebounding project
activity it stalled, appear to be in the rearview mirror.
Even the more recent, and at times painful, transition
period of large hospital projects giving way to smaller
ambulatory facilities has passed, with the volume of
clinic and MOB work today an antidote to shrinking square footage.
Architecture/engineering and construction (A/E/C) firms aren't without challenges, though, as reported in Healthcare Design's 2018 A/E/C
Survey. But they're the kinds of challenges that often come with a robust
business environment: More firms are entering the healthcare sector,
heightening competition that in turn is igniting mergers and acquisitions; more competition is also resulting in mounting pressure to accommodate client requests for lower fees and shorter schedules; and with the
additional work comes the need for more people to do it, making talent
acquisition an ongoing struggle.
But despite the obstacles, respondents were largely optimistic about
working in healthcare today-a time defined by projects driven by the necessity to renovate, modernize, and expand, all while supporting new collaborative care models as well as providing flexibility for the future. And
nearly all endeavors are guided by one critical goal: to improve patient
satisfaction.
The biennial survey was conducted online in January and February
and open to any domestic A/E/C firm that worked in healthcare in 2017.
On average, of the 98 qualified firms that participated, 54 percent of their
work was tied to healthcare, with 40 percent reporting that healthcare
was the majority of their business in 2017 (60 percent or more).
