Retailing Healthcare - integrating specialty care in"retail" settings

Brad Earl, AIA
Managing Principal, Healthcare Studio, NELSON
Douglas Williams
System Director, Planning & Design, Main Line Health

The Affordable Care Act has changed the focus of the delivery of care for health systems across America. Patient Outcomes are more important than ever, as hospitals are judged (and paid) for their specific performance. Centers for Health and Wellness allow patients (and potential future patients) to have greater control over their personal health, through understanding and management of specifically developed program of physical exercise, medical education and nutrition. Coupled with Urgent Care, Specialty Care and Primary Care services, these convenient "Stay Well" hubs become the advance guard for well-care delivery.



1. Hear the Case study for both Main Line Health's Regional Mall Model and their new freestanding Specialty Wellness Center.
2. See the market growth of almost any healthcare service by colocation in a Retail Mall setting.
3. Understand the positive impact on both the Community's overall health and the health system's patient satisfaction rating.
4. Discuss the steps taken with Real Estate brokers, Mall Developer/Operators, Health System's Strategic Thinkers and Business Development executives.
