Faculty Profile:

Scott NelsonVP of ConstructionAdvocate Healthcare
Scott leads all planning, design and construction efforts for the Midwest’s largest integrated-delivery healthcare system, which also boasts the country’s largest ACO. With over $2 billion in capital construction, his team is responsible for managing forward-focused projects for 12 hospitals and 250 additional care sites, including facilities for the largest system-employed physician group in the region. Mr. Nelson has played a key role in designing and implementing a new project delivery method that has proven more cost- and time-efficient, and while delivering a higher cost savings over the building’s projected life cycle. As testament, all construction projects for the past five years have been delivered at-or-below the budgets developed at the Planning Stage under Mr. Nelson’s direction, without suffering mid-project cuts to scope.
