  • Systems Check: 4 healthcare HVAC trends to watch
    BY KENNETH GOLOVKO
    Since the last great recession, healthcare systems have been changing how patients are being served, and subsequently how they operate their facilities to meet these changing needs of clients and healthcare providers.

  • Emergency Power Supply Systems: Best practices, solutions for staying online during disasters
    BY TRACY WAGONER
    When a national disaster hits, keeping power running to life-saving systems within a hospital can literally be a matter of life and death. Not only do those systems need to operate to maintain care for patients within a hospital during the event, they also need to function to treat those who sustain injuries and need care in the aftermath. Outdated generators, malfunctioning automatic transfer switches and improper emergency system setup can all lead to issues when emergency power operations have to be implemented.

    The Tuesday after Thanksgiving has become #GivingTuesday in a campaign to encourage folks to donate to charitable causes at the beginning of the holiday season. It's a wonderful tradition to make sure people stop in the hectic pace of our lives to think about others.
  • Wow! A month later and I am still basking in the glow of this years Symposium. From a number stand point attendance was up over last year but even more notable was that the healthcare provider involvement was significantly higher than past years. Personally, it was such a treat for me to have everyone in my home state.
  • RED SOX, SEAFOOD AND COLLEGE KIDS In less than a month we will all be gathered at the 32nd Annual Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo. It will be my 20th Symposium which is a little crazy when I think about it. For an added treat we are going to be in my home state of Massachusetts. I am over the moon with excitement anticipating welcoming everyone to the great city of Boston.
