those reported in Healthcare Design's 2018 survey, when 45 percent of firms reported completing more projects in 2017 than in 2016, 37 percent about the same, and 18 percent fewer.
Requests for proposals (RFPs) received in
2019 told a similar story. With a total of 7,548
RFPs reported, 43 percent of respondents say
it was more than the previous year, 40 percent
about the same, and 17 percent fewer. In 2018,
those numbers were 47 percent more, 34 percent about the same, and 19 percent fewer.
New contracts signed showed the most significant shift, though, with only 32 percent of firms
saying they signed more contracts than in 2018,
41 percent about the same, and 27 percent fewer.
Of the 4,747 contracts reported signed in 2019,
68 percent were for programming/planning/
architecture/consulting services; 21 percent for
construction; and 11 percent for engineering.
In 2018, however, 42 percent of firms reported

healthcare continues a
longstanding tradition of
uncertainty, especially in
a year tempered by an upcoming presidential election and the Affordable
Care Act (ACA) heading
back to the U.S. Supreme
Court (not to mention what may become a
global pandemic unfolding with COVID-19).
Such realities also continue to color the outlook
for healthcare design, as the industry grapples
with how best to serve clients that remain hesitant to invest in large capital projects or can't
secure necessary financing to do so, all while
continuing to establish ambulatory care networks, complete mergers and consolidations,
and renovate/modernize buildings to make the
best use of existing assets.
It's a story that's been developing for several
years, but now it's colored by new complexities tied to the consumerization of healthcare,
adoption of emerging technologies, disruption
by new competitors, and burgeoning focus on
patient experience. It has been-and will continue to be-a wild ride.
And although a daunting landscape, it's also
one full of opportunity that's putting this industry in a position of strength, as seen in the
results of Healthcare Design's 2020 A/E/C
Survey. In fact, the architecture/engineering
and construction firms that participated in
the survey reported they've maintained a solid footing in the past year-continuing to hold
steady the gains achieved post-recession and
even realizing further growth in some areas.

NUTS AND BOLTS

The biennial survey was conducted online
in January and February and open to any
domestic A/E/C firm that completed at least
one healthcare project in 2019. On average,
about 51 percent of responding firms' overall
work was tied to healthcare in 2019 (38 percent reported that healthcare makes up most
of their business, at 60 percent or more).
In total, firms reported completing 4,612
projects in 2019, with most-46 percent-noting this was about the same as 2018. Additionally, 39 percent of firms say they wrapped up
more projects in 2019 than the year before,
while 15 percent completed fewer. Comparatively, these results weren't quite as positive as
