Every year Healthcare delivery evolves, accelerated by pressures for consumer convenience, service line efficiency and a desire to expand market share. Accessible retail settings achieve multiple goals; establishing brand presence, building awareness of services, bringing new patients into the system and appeasing consumer preferences. Small-scale stand-alone solutions offer neighborhood access points to differentiate and meet demands. Micro hospitals allow health systems to expand quickly and efficiently, while bringing acute care to communities in a bite sized package, but are they the right solution for your organization? In this collaborative presentation experts from Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin, Covider Health and Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA) will discuss the micro hospital's role in the neighborhood access point evolution; reviewing benefits, important positioning elements, development and delivery options and the key components to a successful project.


1. Learn about the ways neighborhood hospital access points are being used to support system reach as a portfolio expansion and diversification tool.
2. Gain insight on the various models and options for neighborhood access deployment, and considerations for each development type.
3. Learn about the key components and must haves for a successful micro hospital implementation.
4. Learn about common pitfalls to avoid when pursuing this facility type.
