Phoenix Rising: Re-purposing Old Facilities for New Healthcare

Bob Gesing AIA
Founding Principal, Trinity: Planning, Design, Architecture
Jason Mueller
Assistant VP, Facility Development & Capital Planning, MedStar Health

With the emergence of the Affordable Care Act and Population Based Healthcare, the need for an evolved ambulatory care delivery platform is necessary to better align care and economics. The ambulatory care center will become the primary venue through which health systems provide care to their community. Population health will require a new model of delivery that transforms the way consumers and providers view, deliver and receive healthcare. While new facility design offers the best opportunity to accomplish transformation, creating ground up facilities is most often neither economically or logistically feasible. MedStar Health has been developing an integrated population based ambulatory delivery network in Baltimore, Southern Maryland, Northern Maryland and the Washington DC metropolitan area. This session will outline the process, challenges and lessons learned in transforming several 1980's commercial buildings in Washington DC into progressive integrated health centers.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Outline programmatic, planning, infrastructure and leasing/economic issues to consider when evaluating existing facilities for ambulatory care.
  2. Introduce programming and planning ideas and metrics for integrated service delivery platforms that drive ambulatory delivery in less space.
  3. Provide insight on the challenges and techniques to help transform the expectations of medical staff to deliver care in non-traditional, "less" space.
  4. Provide "lessons learned" and real-life examples where such approaches resulted in significant and measurable results.
